If there’s one thing that most country music fans can agree on when it comes to the Dixie Chicks, its this: They can pretty much slay any song.
The trio, made up of lead singer Natalie Maines and sisters Emily Strayer and Martie Maguire, has shown that during many of its performances, including ones where the band members have covered Beyoncé’s “Daddy Lessons.”
Fans may recall that the Chicks and Queen Bey teamed up on the murder ballad during the 2016 CMA Awards. That same year, the trio introduced its own stripped-down version of the cut into the set list while out on the “DCX MMXVI World Tour.”
Now the Dixie Chicks are featuring their rendition of “Daddy Lessons” — from Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” album — on their upcoming “DCX MMXVI Live” CD and DVD/Blu-ray package, due out Sept. 1.
In their performance, the Chicks and their backup band are seated on chairs. They get the audience clapping along while plucking on instruments, which consist of banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, drums and melodica. Then, Natalie busts out her best yee-haw before wailing out the lyrics of the tune.
Along with “Daddy Lessons,” “DCX MMXVI Live” will feature a number of Dixie Chicks favorites such as, “Long Time Gone” and “Sin Wagon.” The country group will also share their covers of songs such as the Prince composition “Nothing Compares 2 U” (popularized by Sinead O’Connor) and Bob Dylan’s “Mississippi.” Watch the Dixie Chicks perform, “Daddy Lessons” in the video above.
