Innovators, renegades, villains, mothers, influencers and music superstars, Dixie Chicks, will perform in Ottawa, Montreal, Hamilton, and London as part of their Canadian run on the DCX MMXVII World Tour. The multiple Grammy Award®–winning and multi-platinum selling band kicked off their highly anticipated North American tour, produced by Live Nation, in June 2016 and Dixie Chicks visited over 40 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada during the past few months.
Smooth Hound Smith, the foot stompin’ American roots duo will now be joining the Dixie Chicks when they take the stage in Hamilton at the FirstOntario Centre on Monday, April 17th. Smooth House Smith released their recent album, Sweet Tennessee Honey in early 2016, and have traveled over 10,000 road miles, playing over 500 shows in the last two-and-a-half years. Using primal foot percussion, complex, fuzzed-out, finger-picked guitar patterns, warbled harmonias, tasty harmonies and A LOT of tambourine, they are able to creative a sound that harkens back to the traditions of hazy front porch folk songs as well as raucous back-alley juke joints.
Since their first album, the music of the Dixie Chicks have stirred emotions in fans across the world making them one of the most biggest and most influential bands of our time. Not just "big for a country band" or "big for a big female band," the Dixie Chicks are a multi-platinum selling act in North America, Europe and Australia. They are one of a mere handful of acts with multiple albums achieving "diamond" status (meaning sales over 10 million copies) - both WIDE OPEN SPACES (1998) and FLY (1999) hit that stratospheric landmark - and over the years have sold over 30 million albums worldwide and won thirteen Grammy Awards. Their on-stage reputation has helped them sell over $100 million worth of concert tickets while outspoken songs like "Goodbye, Earl" and "Not Ready To Make Nice" made it clear that this
power trio played by nobody's rules. The Dixie Chicks have grown from a band into a cultural force becoming the biggest selling female band of all time in the U.S.
