Maines and Harper talk "Mother" album, reveal that Dixie Chicks sidegroup The Court Yard Hounds are working on a second album
Natalie Maines and Ben Harper are plotting a tour together to support the Dixie Chicks singer's debut solo album, "Mother."
"I get to be a sideman!" Harper, who co-produced the album, out May 7, told Billboard at the MusiCares event in Los Angeles over the weekend, where they performed "Atlantic City" with Charlie Musselwhite.
Maines said they're working out details for the tour, but it's possible they'll play shows "before and after" her July festival dates with the Dixie Chicks. "There's really no plan for the Chicks after that," she warned.
