It's been four years since the Dixie Chicks released their Grammy-winning album Taking the Long Way in 2006. But the lull in releases doesn't mean the band members haven't been creating.

While the Chicks are still on hiatus, sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison have formed a new band, the Court Yard Hounds, and are readying their first album, a self-titled disc, for release on May 4. And PEOPLE.com is giving you a sneak peek – with an exclusive first listen to the lilting "I Miss You," which features Robison on lead vocals.

"We're looking at it like a new chapter in music," Maguire says of the project in press materials. "We definitely are going to tour this and make another record. I know this isn't just a one-time, get-it-off-our-chests, get-these-songs-recorded-and-go-back-to-our-lives thing."

Dixie Chick Emily Robison's divorce became final on Wednesday in Texas.

"We can confirm that the divorce is final," a rep for the singer tells PEOPLE. "They remain the best of friends and their family is obviously the priority."

The San Antonio Express-News had reported that the Dixie Chick, 35, and her husband of nine years, singer Charlie Robison, 43, quietly filed for divorce in January and appeared at the Bexar County Courthouse Wednesday, when the split was finalized.

According to the divorce filing, the marriage had “become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities." The couple wed in 1999 and have three children: Gus, 5, and twins Julianna Tex and Henry Benjamin, 3.

NEWS BRIEFS: 'ER' Loses Breast Shot

Originally posted 02/05/2004 10:26AM

DELETED: Days after Janet Jackson's bared breast shocked the nation, NBC has agreed to edit out a brief shot of an 80-year-old woman's breast from Thursday night's episode of "ER." "Though we continue to believe the shot is appropriate and in context, and would have aired after 10:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time, we have unfortunately concluded that the atmosphere created by this week's events has made it too difficult for many of our affiliates to air this shot," said an NBC statement.
