The Chicks in the News

(BILLBOARD) - "Could this 2016 European tour mean U.S. dates are in the works? Let's hope so -- the Dixie Chicks haven't toured America since 2006's Accidents & Accusations Tour, which closely followed their Bush-bashing 2003 controversy.

And hey! If Jeb Bush nabs the 2016 Republican nomination, they have to tour the U.S. -- alongside Hillary Clinton."

( - "No U.S. tour dates have currently been scheduled, but the simple fact that Natalie Maines, Emily Robison Strayer and Martie Maguire will be performing again together should increase hope that some American stops might be in the cards."

(Rolling Stone) - "The Grammy-winning group's London date, on May 1st, will take place at the O2 Arena, about 13 miles east of the O2 Empire in Shepherd's Bush, the site of Maines' infamous 2003 declaration in protest of then-President Bush and the impending Iraq War."

(Taste of Country) - "Does the new European tour mean a fresh start for the band? New music, perhaps? A U.S. tour to come? Fans will have to wait and see."

(Uproxx) - "Tickets are gonna go fast; at their peak, the Dixie Chicks were one of the most popular musical acts in the world. They’ve won 13 Grammys, including Album of the Year for 2007’s Taking the Long Way, and hold the record for the highest-selling female band of all-time. Also, and most importantly, Jenna Maroney murders Andy Sipowicz in one of their music videos. No other group, male or female, can say that."

(Washington Post) - "So though there’s no word on any American dates, now would be a particularly fitting time for the trio to return to Nashville for an official comeback, as the country music industry has a well-known problem with makings stars out of female singers."

(Yahoo!) - "With all the talk lately about female representation in country music, let’s point back to the Dixie Chicks – three women who ruled both the country and the pop charts 20 years ago. They also, along with artists like Shania Twain and Faith Hill, spearheaded a country-crossover moment in the ‘90s that brought the genre to new listeners."
