The Court Yard Hounds' second album, 'Amelita,' is a peek at the diary pages of Martie Maguire and Emily Robison. The 11 songs are tremendously personal, and while they're laden with tragically beautiful lyrics, many are difficult to access.
The Court Yard Hounds return with new music on July 16. 'Amelita,' the followup to the duo's critically-acclaimed self-titled album was written and recorded after Emily Robison's divorce. The result is a project that the two women say is more fun and hopeful than their last. Listen to all 11 songs before you can buy them on this Taste of Country album stream.

Court Yard Hounds, the side project of Dixie Chicks' sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison -- which is essentially the Dixie Chicks sans singer Natalie Maines -- host a web series (and lots of cute webisodes) on their official site, where they chat and perform with artists. Tonight's episode, featuring guitarist Nancy Wilson of the classic rock group Heart, airs at 8:30 PM ET.
Last night, Tuesday, Dec. 7, Court Yard Hounds held a live web chat with their fans.
