Dixie Chicks’ Martie Maguire discusses her two bands

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.”

Maines’s words sent shock waves through the conservative country music community and the group was boycotted, dropped by sponsors, and fellow artists turned their noses up at the mention of their name.

So much for free speech!
