Dixie Chicks’ Maines moving on as solo artist
Guitar virtuoso Ben Harper produced the album and performed with Maines at SXSW for a lively show that skewed far more on the side of rock and Americana than the bluegrass and country combination of the Dixie Chicks. Maines first played at the 2,700-seat Moody Theater that is the home studio for Austin City Limits _ a big and tough venue to fill at SXSW, given the 2,200 other artists all vying for attention.
“I like what the three of us had together,” Maines said of the Dixie Chicks. “I did what was required. It felt like my job. I felt like a businesswoman in the industry I was in. I feel like I accepted that and waved that country flag but always felt like I was holding on to who I was, and we were still considered rebellious in the Top 40 country market. But it was news to me that people thought I was something I wasn’t.
“The cat just feels out of the bag now,” Maines said. “I’m not sure I can go back to that.”
