Music to their ears

Dixie Chicks the stars of Sony's Grammy bash

HOLLYWOOD — Sony BMG partygoers stuck around at the Beverly Hills Hotel until midnight for Grammys’ girls, the Dixie Chicks.

But the wait was worth it, especially for the label’s music topper, Rob Stringer.

“It was a year when the Dixie Chicks culturally, politically and musically made a statement. They transcend a lot; they’re not just a country act,” Stringer said.

Winners John Legend and Tony Bennett gradually drifted in to the fest, but Jessica Simpson made a point of being punctual. The singer buzzed past the red carpet, making a beeline for a courtyard tent where she celebrated beau John Mayer‘s win for pop vocal album and male performance.

While other Grammy winners such as Christina Aguilera and Carrie Underwood decided to make cameos, Beyonce provided an excuse for leaving quickly: She was hosting her own party at club Eleven.
