PopMatters has posted an excerpt from Murphy Hicks Henry’s book about influential and often overlooked women in bluegrass, Pretty Good for a Girl.

The first book devoted entirely to women in bluegrass, Pretty Good for a Girl documents the lives of more than seventy women and seven decades of music history. In this excerpt from the book, Henry writes about three bluegrass performers who burst into a new superstar status: Emily Robison, Martie Maguire and Natalie Maines, otherwise known as The Dixie Chicks.
