Court Yard Hounds

Three years after 2006’s Taking the Long Way, sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire were ready to cut a new Dixie Chicks album, but Natalie Maines wasn’t prepared to participate, so the siblings struck out on their own as the duo Court Yard Hounds. Robison stepped into the role as frontwoman for the group, and the pair retained the service of much of the Dixie Chicks extended family -- including Maines’ father Lloyd as a guitarist -- during the recording of their eponymous debut. Given this pedigree, it follows that Court Yard Hounds sound similar to Dixie Chicks' far-reaching country-pop -- perhaps a little softer and sweeter due to the absence of Maines, but recognizably within the same family, and Robison winds up giving the group its own introspective identity. The Court Yard Hounds' first showcase was at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas in March of 2010, and their eponymous album appeared in early May 2010 on Open Wide/Columbia Records. In addition to releasing their debut, Robison and Maguire reunited with Maines in the summer of 2010 as the Dixie Chicks opened for the Eagles on an American tour.

Three years later, Court Yard Hounds returned with a second album called Amelita. Released on July 16, 2013, it appeared just two months after Natalie Maines' solo debut Mother, but Maines and Court Yard Hounds supported their respective records by mounting a brief Canadian tour as Dixie Chicks that summer. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I agree with Natalie, war sux and those that want it should be ashamed of themselves!! This music is very pretty!!

Beautiful, sweet, less angry sound. Emily is a really great singer (perhaps even nicer sounding than Natalie in some respects). I really like it! But I also like the Dixie Chicks. Come back, Natalie!

I think what Natalie did was wrong, but I loved her band.
This is nice, Natalie's album is nice as well. We need y'all back together. Dixie Chicks are a much larger and sweeter sound! We need the Chicks!
The Court Yard Hounds has a beautiful sound, but I also love the sound of the Dixie Chicks. And I think it was so horrid what you all went through just for stating your political beliefs. You have that right as American citizens. Please keep making your beautiful music, all three of you!!

I love the Courtyard Hounds AND the Dixie Chicks! They are amazingly talented! They received too much flack over one remark. They did not deserve everything they went through. Their lives were even threatened! This world is an evil place. Everyone judges, ridicules, and condemns anyone with an opinion if it differs from their own. God Bless Us Every One!
