Danger in the Air - Liner Notes
Robin Lynn Macy, one of the founding members of the
Dixie Chicks, was active in the Dallas music scene long before
the Chicks first played on that street corner in the West End. While teaching at
St. Mark's School of Texas,
a prestigous prep school for boys, she found time to help form a bluegrass
group called Danger in the Air. The group self-published a couple of
cassettes in the late '80s just before the Dixie Chicks formed.
The members of Danger in the Air for both albums are:
On this page: Liner Notes for the self-titled release (1988) and
Airtight (1990). The cassette liners were very simple foldouts, so there wasn't
room for a lot of information.
- Drew Garrett, Bass
- Robin Lynn Macy, Guitar, Vocals
- Andy Owens, Mandolin, Vocals
- James McKinney, Banjo
- Stephan Dudash, Fiddle, Vocals
Song Lists for these releases, and more info on the group, are on a separate page.
Danger in the Air (self-titiled), 1988
Dixie Chicks fans will want to take particular note of the producer of this release,
Larry Seyer. He also produced
the 1991 Dixie Chicks single Home On The Radar Range (see the
Discography page for more info) and 1992's Little Ol' Cowgirl.
For Cowgirl, Seyer brought the Dixie Chicks together with Texas steel guitar legend
Lloyd Maines -- who had a daughter named Natalie who
happened to be interested in the music biz. The rest, as they say, is history... and it all starts here.
