The Dixie Chicks started out as a fiddling bluegrass band in the late '80s, transforming into the rodeo queens of honkey tonk over the course of eight short years.
Their incredible successes continued with over a dozen "Top Ten" hits until the band hit a rough spot with a statement made during a concert by lead singer Natalie Maines. During a 2003 concert in London, Maines opened up about their opposition to the invasion of Iraq...
"Just so you know, we're on the good side with y'all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas."
This sparked a political controversy about the band that would last for over a decade. Because of this and other factors, the Dixie Chicks haven't appeared on a national US tour since the public uproar about their comments.
Just announced, the Dixie Chicks have set out on a world tour that includes a national-scale tour of the US. Their first... in ten years! The DCXMMXVI World Tour begins in April 2016 and continues through October with appearances from coast to coast.
But how will Americans react to this trio's return?
