So I'm sitting here writing a "To answer that fan question" post about the Dixie Chicks when I accidentally on purpose came across one of Natalie Maines' tweets from June 28th that kind of made me excited, although it's quite possible Natalie was just being sarcastic since she's kind of like that on Twitter. She's definitely fun to follow.
@1NatalieMaines Natalie, do you have any plans to release a solo album? Please say yes! :)
@augustblue Yes. I'm 8 songs deep making one right now. Hopefully a spring release.
Ummm, hello! Yay if this is Natalie being serious. I would be sad not to have more Dixie Chicks, but I love Natalie's voice and I think it would be interesting to hear what she has to say since I have a feeling her album would probably be full of all kinds of "screw you's" to those who have wronged her in the past. She hits me as a sort of kiss-my-ass, take-no-prisoners sort of gal.
I'll keep you updated if I happen to hear anything else.
