By Greg Hernandez
Martie Maguire — one-half of the Court Yard Hounds and one-third of the Dixie Chicks — talks to Out.com about juggling her two bands. Hounds opens for The Eagles this summer but stresses that Dixie Chicks remains together.
The group has been through a lot since lead vocalist, Natalie Maines, told an audience: “Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas.”

So much for free speech!
