Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines on “Good Stuff”
In addition to winning several local music awards in San Antonio and Austin (including “Best Singer-Songwriter,” “Best Folk Act” and “Best New Band”), Hendrix co-wrote a Grammy-winning instrumental (“Lil’ Jack Slade”) on the Dixie Chicks’ multi-platinum “Home” album. But the biggest professional and personal honors of her career have all come about in the last year.
In 2010, she was inducted into the South Texas Music Walk of Fame in Corpus Christi, joining such Lone Star luminaries as Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson and Doug Sahm. She also received the Art of Peace Award from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, honoring her for creating art in the service of peace, justice and human understanding. And in February 2011, she returned to Abilene to receive an Outstanding Alumni Award by Hardin-Simmons University; the award is given each year to three alumni who have attained outstanding achievements in their ﬁeld of endeavor, community, state or nation. terrihendrix.com
Lloyd Maines, multi-instrumentalist, Grammy-award producer of some of the finest CDs that come out of Texas (and father of Dixie Chick Natalie Maines) is Terri’s right hand man on her tour, adding sweet, deft, tasteful licks and harmonies to her music.
