If you're wondering where the Dixie Chicks have been, the answer is, in the studio. They've been working with producer Rick Rubin (best known in country circles for his work with the late great Johnny Cash), on a new album. And, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, they've offered up a sneak peek of their sound, with a new song called "I Hope." They debuted it during the recent multi-network telethon, "Shelter From the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast." Now you can get a copy of the song, while also helping Katrina victims. "I Hope" is available online as an exclusive digital download, at Sony Connect, Rhapsody, Yahoo!, Music Unlimited, SonyMusicStore.com, iTunes, MSN and Napster. Co-written by the Dixie Chicks and blues artist Keb' Mo', "I Hope" was recorded the night before the September 9 telethon and features special guests Robert Randolph on pedal steel guitar; and guitarist Mike Campbell and keyboard player Benmont Tench, both of whom are members of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.
