Dixie Chick Natalie Maines Plans First Solo Album

NEW YORK (February 11, 2013)--Natalie Maines of The Dixie Chicks will release her first solo album, “Mother,” on May 7.

The title track is a cover of the Pink Floyd song "Mother," and that's a clue to the contents of the album, which Maines says is very different from the music of The Dixie Chicks with more of a rock edge.

Singer-songwriter Ben Harper co-produced the album.

One of the songs, on "Come Cryin' to Me," was co-written with fellow Dixie Chicks Martie Maguire and Emily Robison.

Maines said they wrote that song for their "Taking the Long Way" album but it was too rock.
