Dixie Chicks founders and siblings Martie Maguire and Emily Robison have turned what at first seemed just a side project into a full-time gig. Their individual songwriting talents and musical prowess on fiddle, guitar and vocals – always at the heart of The Dixie Chicks’ phenomenally successful ride – were still shadowed by Natalie Maines’ brilliant vocals and personality. Fueled by a wealth of life experiences including motherhood and divorce, The Court Yard Hounds’ album and North American tour have been met with great acclaim and a whole new fan base.
