DCX Superfan of the Month: Seth

Meet Seth, our November DCX Superfan of the Month. Read below to find out why Seth loves the Chicks!

What part of the country do you live in?
The Deep South. Alabama. Roll Tide!

What are your top 3 favorite things to do?
When I’m not thinking of new ways to include the Dixie Chicks in my life, I spend my time editing videos for cash, complaining about the weather, and eating carbs.

What do you do for a living?
Delivery driver/video editor. Yes, that’s a thing.

How many times have you seen Dixie Chicks live?
Once. It would have been twice; however, the people of Nashville swiped up those tickets too fast.

Tell us what it means to you to be a fan of DCX?
To me, being a Dixie Chicks fan means that I understand what complete badass looks like. Three women who aren’t afraid of anyone or anything. 

How do you show your fandom?
My favorite way of showing fandom is forcing my friends to listen to the Dixie Chicks. Though... I don’t really have to force them anymore. Usually, they’re the ones asking me to “play Sin Wagon.”

What in your mind makes the Dixie Chicks stand out from any other band?
Their musicality is what separates them from other bands. Of course they can sing…. but the way they play is what sets them apart. Just go listen to Sin Wagon, you’ll understand. Bad. Ass.

What currently is the most played song in your music library?
“Taking the Long Way” is the most played song in my music library. Mostly because I’ve taken several road trips with friends this year and we played it 3 or 4 times an hour. We know good music.

What was the first Dixie Chicks song you remember hearing and when was it?
“Goodbye Earl” is the one that stands out. My dad recorded the music video and I would watch it over and over and over and over and over. I was maybe 7 years old. I understood good music then too. Not to mention… the music video is the greatest of all time. I will not even entertain a rebuttal.

What’s your favorite song from Dixie Chicks and why?
“Taking the Long Way.” The lyrics, the melody, the story behind it. We can all relate. The main reason, however, is the three part harmonies. They are perfect. Then…… “Sin Wagon” comes in 2nd…. of course.

What is your favorite album from Dixie Chicks and why? 
Taking the Long Way is my favorite album for sure. My friends love it, that’s why. I hear it the most. I can’t count the times I’ve heard, “play Not Ready to Make Nice, bruh.” Also, sitting at a red light with the windows down, blasting “I Hope” while the other cars watch us praise is always fun.

How do you stay connected with your favorite artists?
Through social media. I stalk from afar.

What’s your favorite piece of DCX memorabilia?
I can’t honestly say that I have any. I’m not asking for a signed acoustic guitar or anything….. but yeah, I could use a signed guitar.

What was your first concert ever, the last concert you’ve seen and what will be the next?
Mayhem Fest. Korn and Rob Zombie. Should have rocked a Dixie Chicks shirt at the venue. The last concert was DIXIE CHICKS and the next will probably be…. Dixie Chicks if they ever decide to bring their asses back. Might be another ten years…. but I’ll be here.

When and where was the first time you saw the Chicks live?
Little Rock, Arkansas back in September. Highlight of my year. After 15 years of being inspired by them, getting to see them live was kind of surreal. I think Martie waved at me….. but I was like 190 rows back…. so I can’t be sure.

Did you attend the MMXVI Tour? If so, what shows did you attend? 
Yes, Little Rock. Would have gone to more…. but the South loves them so much, they sold out too fast. No tickets. Sad!

What’s the furthest you’ve traveled to see a show?
Mayhem Fest in North Carolina. Ten hour drive. Fun stuff. I had Dixie Chicks on my iPod though. So, I made it okay.

Tell us something about the Dixie Chicks that a lot of other fans may not know?
The Dixie Chicks are the biggest selling country group of all time and the biggest selling female group of all time. Look it up, folks. They’re also the most beautiful. I think everyone knows that one though.

If you could tell Dixie Chicks one thing, what would it be?
Thanks for inspiring me. My dad recorded your ON THE FLY NBC Concert Special when I was in kindergarten. I watched it every day on VHS. I used my brother’s drum sticks as a fiddle and mimed the entire thing. I begged my mom for a fiddle and she finally gave in when I was 7. Started taking lessons and have been playing ever since. Since then, I’ve even branched out to the banjo. I don’t think I would have ever wanted to learn had I not had a HUGE crush on Martie and wanted to play just like her. So, yea… continue being badass and inspiring 7 year old boys all over the world.
