I've no doubt some people avoided the tune on purpose as Court Yard Hounds are two-thirds of the Dixie Chicks. Now, through time and distance, only the complete ideologues still harbor a grudge against the Dixie Chicks (and most of them left Stubbys as soon as I added a link to my Labor Quotes repository). My guess is only the complete ideologues ever held a grudge in the first place (funny how politics was supposed to stop at the water's edge for Bush, but not for Obama. And, with that, the rest of the ideologues just left. Their loss.). The Chicks will be playing and touring together again, this coming year, including a bunch of US dates, if you're interested.
The music of Court Yard Hounds was never the music of the Dixie Chicks, though. The sisterly harmonies are fully intact, but the sound is Indie Alt Folk Pop. And this song, "Bom Bom Bom" is not just a great song, but a great Christmas song. It should be a part of everyone's annual holiday playlist. If the name on the label was Low or Over The Rhine, it already would be. I was actually surprised that the song could still be had for free from a two year old post on the Court Yard Hounds website. But it is. It will cost you your email but, hey, what doesn't these days?
