Court Yard Hounds

Genre: Country

Court Yard Hounds are the Dixie Chicks minus Natalie Maines, whose 1995 addition transformed the group from Texas traditionalists into global stars. So is the Hounds’ debut a return to roots? Kinda: Quiet cuts like ”Skyline” emphasize their down-home vocals. But ”The Coast” is sunny pop, while ”Ain’t No Son” rocks harder than ”Goodbye Earl.” B
