Martie Maguire and Emily Robison are going to release their first album in May under the moniker of Court Yard Hounds, instead of Dixie Chicks.

Now that Natalie Maines is taking a hiatus from , Martie Maguire and Emily Robison decided to rename their band . The name is a reference to Ian Livingstone's best-selling novel "City of Thieves", according to Rolling Stones.

Martie and Emily have started recording their first album and plan to release it in May. Emily will serve as the lead vocalist and team up with in a song called "See You in the Spring". This duo will make their debut performance at the South by Southwest music conference in Austin this March and launch a tour after the album is dropped.

Though they are now working as a duo, Martie is still looking forward for a reunion with Natalie someday. "I'm hoping she'll come out to one of our shows. Maybe it'll inspire her to want to do music again," she said.
