Dixie Chicks Change Their Name & Release a New Single!
The band formerly known as the Dixie Chicks have dropped the “Dixie” part of their name amid ongoing protests against white supremacy.
They will henceforth be known simply as The Chicks!
Not to mention, the all-female trio released a new protest song called “March March,” from their upcoming album Gaslighter.
The music video features clips of activists Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai, and Emma Gonzalez, and is a poignant tribute to Black Lives Matter protestors.
The song, written by the trio as well as Dan Wilson, Jack Antonoff, Ross Golan, and Ian Kirkpatrick, touches on several other issues like gun control, white privilege, climate change, and abortion.
“March, march to my own drum/ Hey, hey, I’m an army of one,” the track opens.
“Brenda’s packing heat ’cause she don’t like Mondays/ Underpaid teachers policing the hallways/ Print yourself a weapon and take it to the gun range,” they later sing over a fierce fiddle solo by Martie Maguire.
