Dixie Chicks, Taking the Long Way.

Sweet.

I'm not a techie like my bud Christian, who has a running feed from last.fm (quite cool, btw). But I ran out today and bought the new CD from one of my favorite groups.

It's good. Really good. Not as bluegrassy, but it's not bad. "I Hope" has a gospel tinge to it. "Lullaby" is beautiful, and I love that since they've had children, they always include a lullaby on the album.

Oh, and they don't only call out W., they also call out Lubbock. Which, you know, those who have lived in Texas, really needed to be done. So amen, good job chicks.

I haven't heard the whole album yet, but "Lullaby" was featured on the season finale of Medium on Monday. I think it's beautiful, too. :)

Go, Chicks! I heard the tune on iTunes, and I might just pick up the whole album.

I love the whole c.d. But it could be that I became an even bigger fan of the Dixie Chicks when Natalie took on W and TK. Being a former Lubbockite, I'm dismayed at that town's lack of spine. For God's sake, it's a college town. It had to be done.

The more I listen to it, the more I like it. Cathy has most of the songs memorized after being in my office for two days.

That probably means I listen to it too much on iTunes.
