Baby Hold On

Album: Taking The Long Way (2006)
  • Pete Yorn and Gary Louris helped The Chicks write this. Emily Robison says: "That's a song touching on where we are in our lives and our relationships, trying to get your partner to be #1 in your life and putting the focus back on your marriage, as opposed to just being mom and dad. Kind of a 'where are we now' look at married life."
    Martie Maguire added: "I thought we'd write more about our families than we did. We're really good friends, but we don't always talk a lot about our personal lives - maybe out of not wanting to burden the others, or even just to keep a bit of privacy." (quotes thanks to the band's publicist)
