The musical career of Robin Lynn Macy started before the Dixie Chicks (with the group Danger in the Air), and continued after she left the group in 1992. After the Domestic Science Club broke up, Robin returned to her Kansas roots to return to her other love, teaching math.
But from 2000 to 2003, Robin was part of a regional bluegrass band called Big Twang. The group cut one great album, Pastures of Plenty, before the post-9/11 economic slump forced some of the band members to focus on their day jobs. Before long, the group disbanded.
