Dixie Chicks Cowgirl Band
Critics' Comments"... as you saddle up for that next long van trip, just remember that your work is not going unnoticed. You spread a lot of joy with your music and personalities. You are truly A TEXAS TREASURE!"
Letter from Ken Nicolas
"The Dixie Chicks are among those who can claim their fans nationwide.
Their second album helped spread the word."
You haven't been scared 'til you are in a Winnebago with Martie at the wheel - she pruned some trees in Oklahoma City and learned that the hotel driveway overhang was 9' and not 9'4".
New Scrabble word is Zibimok.
We got a couple of letters that said we needed to give our guys a sentence or two in our newsletter so here are their most recent quotes:
Drummin Tom ways: "BomBom Buhduhbuhduh bom bom!" Jeff's quote: "Sound travels so well in the Arctic that on a still day you can hear a conversation from a distance of 1.8 miles."
Matt, pondering the origins of Christmas: "What if there had been a room at the inn?" Then the song would be "Away in a roll-a-way..."
We were in Hog Heaven at the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque. At the Fair, Emily bought a big purple wooly sweater (it was 98 degrees out), a concho bracelet, some moccasins, and tried to buy the baby zebra at the petting zoo. Laura bought a whole box of Christmas candelabras, another piece of turquoise, a pair of boots, a big tin of homemade Divinity, and stayed perched on the electric foot massagers. Martie bought corn on the cob.
We saw the largest Hog in the world -- 1100 lbs -- and sleeping. A ping pong ball would fit in its nostril.
[After the order form, the Chicks make a request:]
Does anyone know of any more rhyming endings to our song Pink Toenails? Best entry gets a Booby Prize!
The key is in the ignition, in the Target parking lot off LBJ.
Thanks to Darlin' Dave Oliver for the autographed baseballs and lunch at the Paris Cafe in Cowtown.
Thanks boodles for the bootiful boots to Kelly and Ken at the Justin Boot Company!
Well, we'll let you get back to your knittin' and shippin'. Till springtime we remain
May the wind at your back not be your own."
Our fearless manager, David Skepner's famous quote:
"It's not brain surgery, just get out there and have fun."
This first issue after Robin's departure wasn't particularly eventful.
The trio just kept on trucking. But the note about Laura's daughter
Asia is interesting. She "doesn't want to be a cowgirl," and at 11 she's
going to be more and more affected by her mom's absence.
