Girls Next Door was an American country music group formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1982 and disbanded in 1991. The group consisted of Doris King, Cindy Nixon, Diane Williams, and Tammy Stephens. The group recorded three albums.


Girls Next Door was founded in 1982 by record producer Tommy West, who suggested that studio backing vocalist Doris King form a four-woman vocal group.[1] They were previously known as Belle and Wildflower.[2] Girls Next Door recorded two albums for MTM Records and one for Atlantic Records, in addition to charting nine singles on the U.S. country charts. Their most successful song was "Slow Boat to China", which reached number 8 on the country charts in 1986.

The original four members reunited for one concert in 2011.[3]
