The Court Yard Hounds are basically the Dixie Chicks, minus their lead singer Natalie Maines. The folk sounding duo was the brainchild of sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison. The sisters decided to record their own project and for the first time, Emily Robison takes over lead vocals. For the record, I love the sound the Hounds have just unleashed in their new song "Sunshine". Check it out and tell me what you think.
