Take a listen to all of Natalie Maines’ new album “Mother”

Reluctant Dixie Chick, Natalie Maines, may not care much for country music anymore, but that doesn't mean that country music doesn't care about Natalie Maines. 

Or at least many of us are curious what her first solo album will be like. 

If you are one of those who are curious then you're in luck because NPR has your first listen to Natalie's solo debut, an album called "Mother," in its entirety a week before its release. Check it out here.

Even if you can't stand Natalie, you really should listen to at least one song on the album, the one called Lover, You Should've Come Over. It's a Jeff Buckley cover and it's beautiful.

Girl's definitely still got it. 

You can also preorder the album on iTunes and Amazon. "Mother" drops May 7th.
