Dixie Chicks

Few of the millions and millions of people who bought the Dixie Chicks' major label debut, Wide Open Spaces, knew that the band had already been together for almost a decade, playing the folk and bluegrass circuit. The group was started by champion fiddle player Martie Seidel and her banjo-playing sister Emily Irwin. They went through a succession of lead singers before settling on Natalie Maines in the late-1990s. Maines' country pedigree is impressive, beginning with her father Lloyd Maines, a legendary pedal steel guitarist and studio luminary who has produced and played with Uncle Tupelo, Richard Buckner and Joe Ely, among others. With Maines in place, the Chicks dropped some of their bluegrass trappings in favor of a more conventional New Country sound. The fine-tuning paid off. Wide Open Spaces rocketed to the top of the charts, as did its follow-up Fly. But 2002's aptly titled Home found the girls returning to their bluegrass roots (despite the pop-friendly cover of Stevie Nicks' "Landslide"), which was a well-timed choice considering that by then, country music fans were caught up in old-timey fever thanks to the O Brother, Where Art Thou phenomenon.

  • An Evening with the Dixie Chicks

    Dixie Chicks

    Year: 2003

    Runtime: 1 hr 31 min

    Although the Dixie Chicks have technically been making music since 1989, it wasn't until 1995, with the addition of singer Natalie Maines, that the band truly took off. Maines joined Martie Seidel and Emily Erwin Robison to complete a hyper-talented, multi-dimensional trio that seamlessly blends blues, bluegrass, country, pop, and a bit of Irish jig. Their double-Grammy-winning debut, Wide Open Spaces, is the bestselling album in country music history, and their follow-up, Fly, took home two Grammys of its own. An Evening with the Dixie Chicks is a live concert performance from L.A.'s Kodak Theater that aired on NBC in December 2002, featuring tunes from Wide Open Spaces, Fly, and the band's latest release, Home. For both diehard Dixie Chicks fans and the uninitiated, this one is a can't-miss.
