The Mastersons Fly South To Familiar Territory

Chris Masterson and wife Eleanor Whitmore may live in Brooklyn these days, but like many New Yorkers, they are avid snowbirds. So much so, their new album will be titled Bird Fly South.

"We're like migratory birds, we always head down to Texas for the Christmas holidays and stick around as long as we can," says Houston native Masterson from SugarHill Studios engineer Steve Christensen's house in the Heights. "We love New York, but not the winter weather."

With family in Houston, Austin, and the Dallas area, Masterson notes that the couple "can stay down here for almost nothing, so we do."
