The Wreckers were an American country duo formed in 2005 by Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp, both of whom had solo recordings before the duo's foundation.

In 2006, the duo released its debut album “Stand Still, Look Pretty,” which produced a #1 song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs in its lead-off single "Leave the Pieces." The album accounted for a Top Ten hit on the same chart in "My, Oh My" as well. It made the Top 5 on the country music albums chart in the United States, the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, and the #1 spot on the United Kingdom Country Chart.

The pair was nominated for "Vocal Duo of the Year" at the 40th Annual CMA Awards. In December 2006, they were nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal" for "Leave the Pieces" and ended up winning the award.

After the album’s release, both Branch and Harp returned to being solo singers.
