Court Yard Hounds at the Grammy Museum 5/10
One Chick prefers roosting right now--at least that's the story behind the birth of the Court Yard Hounds-- two-thirds of the popular country-folk-pop trio the Dixie Chicks. The new side project by sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison allows the two to take center stage, which has been occupied for years by the dynamic (and opinionated) vocalist Natalie Maines.
Dixie Chicks fans flocked to the Grammy Museum for The Drop program, which allows an intimate crowd to hear musicians talk about their latest work and play a few tunes the before the album's released. Maguire and Robison were on hand to promote their self-titled debut, which takes its name from The Courtyard Hound--a book within a book by David Benioff (City of Thieves).
