Dixie Chicks

In 1989, Maguire and Strayer joined guitarist Robin Lynn Macy and Laura Lynch on twofold bass in the Dixie Chicks, playing what was at the time prevalently twang music and a blend of nation guidelines. Initially recorded as Martha, and afterward, Martie Erwin, she played the fiddle, mandolin, viola and fit with Strayer on support vocals.

Maguire had started composing and recording melodies on their presentation autonomous collection, Thank Heavens for Dale Evans, and in 2001, one tune co-composed with Laura Lynch called “Pink Toenails” reemerged. The melody was highlighted in the film, Don’t Say A Word, with Skye McCole Bartusiak playing out the tune.

When their second album had a more polished sound, Erwin commented, “I hope our fans won’t be disappointed [in The Little Ol’ Cowgirl]; it’s got drums on every track; it’s no longer bluegrass, but we have to make a living and you can’t do that playing bluegrass.”

Two collections later, after Natalie Maines took on the situation of vocalist, the band was renewed. Erwin said of their music, “It’s very rootsy, yet then Natalie comes in with a stone and blues impact. That allowed Emily and I to fan out, in light of the fact that we adored those sorts of music yet felt constrained by our instruments.”

Martie co-composed the tune, “Cattle rustler Take Me Away” on the Chicks sophomore studio collection Fly for her sister Emily. It was a tribute to Emily’s romance with bluegrass music author/vocalist Charlie Robison. Erwin was singled out by BMI in 2000, and granted Songwriter of the Year for composing as well as co-expressing “Cowpoke Take Me Away”, “Prepared To Run” and “You Were Mine”. “You Were Mine” was co-composed by the sisters about their folks’ separation.

In spite of the fact that Erwin and Strayer regularly seem calm and shy contrasted with their energized bandmate Natalie Maines, the trio has stood joined on questionable subjects since they united together to play in 1995, notwithstanding when their suppositions have could possibly serve them more mischief than anything. In 2006, Erwin stated, “I’d preferably have a little after of truly cool individuals who get it, who will develop with us as we develop and are fans forever, than individuals that have us in their five-plate changer with Reba McEntire and Toby Keith. We don’t need those sorts of fans. They limit what you can do.”

Court Yard Hounds

With Natalie Maines taking a break from music, Martie was taking a shot at a performance fiddle collection; notwithstanding, it was declared in January 2010 that she and sister Emily Strayer have shaped a side task called the Court Yard Hounds, with Strayer on lead vocals.
