I double-checked three times that it was the Wall Street Journal I was reading when I spotted this error. The Dixie Chicks banjo player and Court Yard Hounds lead singer is Emily Robison, not Emily Robinson. And this is no one-time typo: It’s spelled wrong in both occurrences in the post, and in the caption. It’s especially bad because Emily took her name from her ex-husband, Charlie Robison, who is also a very talented country/Americana recording artist, as is his brother Bruce. This is why country has a chip on its shoulder, folks.
