When Terri Hendrix walked away from her opera scholarship in college, it was only because she found the classical music path too narrow for her free spirit. But there was just no shaking her love of music. Now, nine self-released albums later, Hendrix is still thriving—and grateful she made the fateful decision more than a dozen years ago to not only follow her own path through her music career, but to ultimately "own her own universe."

Perhaps best known as a pedal steel player, Lloyd Maines is a multi-instrumentalist who has also performed and/or recorded playing dobro, electric and acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, and bell tree. He toured and recorded as a member of the Joe Ely Band and has also played with Guy Clark, Butch Hancock, Terry Allen, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and other Texas musicians.
