Emily Erwin Robison

"We used to get some flak for calling ourselves chicks,
but we've come full circle, and women can call themselves anything they want.
I think we're symbolic of that strength, that women can do anything,
call their own shots, play their own instruments…we're breaking stereotypes."

Emily started out at age 7 playing the violin, switched to banjo at age 10, with dobro and mandolin to follow. She is learning to play the accordion this year after receiving one as a Christmas gift. Emily made an attempt at Hee Haw fame as a banjo player, but failed to get the part. "You Were Mine", the only song written by the Chicks on Wide Open Spaces, was written mostly by Emily; Martie wrote the bridge.
