@Smoothie King Center
Saturday Sept 10, 2016 7:30PM
We didn’t know for a while whether country’s Dixie Chicks were country, pop are what some were calling alternative country. But they knew what kind of music they wanted and they did it and continue to do it. The Dixie Chicks will be at the Smoothis King Center, Saturday night, September 10th, 2016 concerting starting at 7:30PM.
The band is composed of founding members Martie Erwin Maguire and Emily Erwin Robison, and lead singer Natalie Maines. The band formed in 1989 in Dallas, Texas, and was originally composed of four women performing bluegrass and country music, busking and touring the bluegrass festival circuits and small venues for six years without attracting a major label. After the departure of one bandmate, the replacement of their lead singer, and a slight change in their repertoire, Dixie Chicks soon achieved commercial success, beginning in 1998 with hit songs "There's Your Trouble" and "Wide Open Spaces".
