They are arguably the most polarizing group in the history of country music. People either loved the Dixie Chicks for their platinum-selling records and live shows, or they hated them (later on in their career) for lead singer Natalie Maines’ outspoken political commentary. There are very few people that are on the fence about this award-winning group. Most are on one side or the other.
But it doesn’t much matter which side you’re on. The Dixie Chicks are releasing a second live album, and from the size and enthusiasm of this crowd in their new live video for “Not Ready to Make Nice,” plenty of people are going to buy it.
The band shared the new video on their YouTube page, promoting the Dixie Chicks’ “DCX MMXVI Live” bundle, which is now available for pre-order on Amazon Music.
On August 7, select theaters presented “Dixie Chicks — DCX MMXVI — In Concert.” The film followed the trio on their sold-out “DCX MMXVI World Tour” which marked their return to the touring world and took band members Natalie, Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer around the globe.
A look at their website shows that there are no tour dates coming up for the Dixie Chicks, nor are there any listed on the site for Court Yard Hounds, Emily and Martie’s other band. However, Natalie recently announced her split with husband Adrian Pasdar and she may want some time off to focus on her sons. She and Adrian have two boys together.
