Maguire, Robison record new music

Tuesday, January 12, 2010 – Sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire, also known as two=thirds of the Dixie Chicks, are recording new music without lead singer Natalie Maines. However, CMT.com reported that the Chicks remains an on-going band.

The disc will be out on Columbia, the Chicks' label, but no further information, such as title and release date, were available.

Maines father well-known producer Lloyd Maines, who co-produced the Chicks' 2002 album, "Home," said to CMT that the sisters were "cutting some demos." He said Natalie recorded "a little something with them...about a year ago. I know that Martie's doing a fiddle record on her own and that Emily has been demoing some of her (own) songs. I played on some of those."

Among those playing on Maguire's fiddle disc are Rob Ickes.

As for The Chicks, their web site has no new information about the group. Lloyd Maines said the three were at his house for Christmas.

"Everybody seemed happy and healthy. And they were back here on New Year's Eve with their families. Everybody had a great time, but I tell you, during holidays, I don't ask any business questions, and they didn't offer any insight. ... But they're definitely still an entity."

"I know that the girls seem really happy being out of the public eye. They hit it so hard for so many years. The dynamics have changed so much now because they've all got kids that are in school. The happy-go-lucky, just-take-off-and-go situation has definitely changed."

The trio lost its standing on the country radio scene; their albums were burned, and they received death threats.But Emily Robison, Martie Maguire and Maines do not backpedal on these 14 songs. They, instead, address the issues that have faced them head on time and again. "Not Ready to Make Nice" maintains ...
The Dixie Chicks certainly enjoyed their most controversial year ever thanks to a few words uttered by lead singer Natalie Maines, and they also had one of the most successful tours of 2003 as well. This 22-song live disc recorded somewhere during the U.S. part of the tour is clear indication that beyond the headlines, there was a tremendous amount of quality music going on. The mix put Maines' vocals way out front. She has always been a good singer, and this indicates just how good she truly is. ...
