Dixie Chicks

Here’s some country music from Dixie Chicks that you can listen to on Spotify.

I remember seeing the Dixie Chicks when they were just starting in Dallas, and they were fantastic live even back then. They were the entertainment for our annual IBM picnic, which I think was held at the Austin Ranch, one of the oldest dude ranches in Texas, just north of the DFW Airport in Grapevine.

Dixie Chicks have won 13 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for “Taking the Long Way” and “Not Ready to Make Nice” as a single from that album.  They became the top selling all-female band and biggest selling country group in the U.S. after selling over 30 million albums by 2013.

Their last three albums represent various collections on songs from the Dixie Chicks, but I have included them as well since some readers might like to listen to them, even though there’s some duplication with the original albums.

Since 2010 at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire have released several albums as the duo “Court Yard Hounds” without lead vocalist Natalie Maines, although they have continued to tour as the Dixie Chicks with the Eagles and Keith Urban.

Here are some of their most popular songs.
