Court Yard Hounds
|Amazon Price||New from||Used from|
Emily Robison and Martie Maguire of The Dixie Chicks are releasing new music under the moniker Court Yard Hounds.
The Court Yard Hounds profoundly evocative songs tell stories woven into melodies that are both individual and universal. Robison is the lead vocalist and primary writer on most of the tracks, although Maguire takes over the lead on her own solo composition, Gracefully. The new music spans sounds of folk, country, rock and Americana and includes a collaboration with Jakob Dylan on See You in the Spring, the wry tale of a couple from the northernmost and southernmost parts of the country who find their biggest obstacle is climatic.
Texas also asserts itself more contentedly in The Coast, which celebrates neither the east nor west but south coast, and Skyline, which was inspired by the view of San Antonio from Robison s loft. Faster paced songs range from the self-doubting levity of Then Again to the fiery outrage of Ain t No Son, a song about an angry, disapproving father. Fairytale speaks to romantic enchantment, while there s no happily-ever-after in sight in the breakup songs April s Love and It Didn t Make a Sound.
Very disappointed. Not nearly as good as their work with the Dixie Chicks.Published 4 months ago by T. McMullen

I took a chance on this CD and really am sorry I did. I mainly purchased it because of the duet with Bob Dylan's son -- guess I should have purchased only that song. Read morePublished 16 months ago by ReadWithJoy
Great music from 2/3 dixie chicks.Very DC modern sound. But Then again the single is the best track on it.Published 17 months ago by Re-Cycler
It takes more than one listen to for me to know if I like the album or not. Court yard hounds has more cutting grit in it then it's sister album Amelita. Read morePublished 19 months ago by hvacdad1

Nobody gives a crap what you think. And just so you know they'll always be country. She was an honest person voicing her opinions. Bush sucked anyways.
