Lyric Street was probably the fourth place we went to. There's a stigma attached to female groups, so we were up against a lot. We went to a couple of other places first, but at that point The Dixie Chicks hadn't come out, so the other companies just looked at us and said, „Oh, it's three girls, it's not going to work."
