Information about Dixie ChicksThe Dixie Chicks are a country music group, presently comprised of Martie Maguire, Emily Robison and lead singer Natalie Maines. The group had sold 30.5 million albums in the United States through Aug. 2009 (8 years ago), making them the best-selling female group in the country.
The group formed in 1989 (28 years ago) in Dallas, Texas, and was originally composed of four women performing bluegrass and country music, busking and touring the bluegrass festival circuits and small venues for six years, without attracting a major label. After the departure of one bandmate, the replacement of their lead singer, and a slight change in their repertoire, the Dixie Chicks achieved massive country music and pop success, beginning in 1998 (19 years ago) with hit songs like "Wide Open Spaces", "Cowboy Take Me Away", and "Long Time Gone". The women also became well-known for their independent spirit and controversial comments on subjects such as war and politics.
During a London concert ten days before the 2003 (14 years ago) invasion of Iraq, lead vocalist Maines said, "we don't want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas" (the Dixie Chicks' home state). The statement offended people who thought it rude and unpatriotic, and the ensuing controversy cost the group half of their concert audience attendance in the United States and led to accusations of the three women being un-American, as well as hate mail, a death threat, and the destruction of their albums in protest.
As of 2009 (8 years ago), they have won 13 Grammy Awards, with 5 of them earned in 2007 (10 years ago) including the coveted Grammy Award for Album of the Year for Taking The Long Way.
