With eight trophies from the ACM Awards, four from American Music Awards, seven from Billboard Music Awards, ten from CMA Awards, and 13 Grammy Awards, The Chicks is undoubtedly one of the most decorated artists of all time. Starting as The Dixie Chicks, the trio of Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire, and Emily Robison dropped the word Dixie when they came back in 2020 after a 14-year hiatus. What started as a simple trio of country artists singing about typical country ballads turned out to be the biggest-selling female band of all time in the United States — with over 30 million albums sold worldwide.
Over the years, the trio became the face of empowered women who spoke their minds. Needless to say, The Chicks may have suffered for speaking their minds, but they emerged victorious in the end. To say that they have become a phenomenon over the years is an understatement. The Chicks are an icon not only in country music but in the entire music industry. As described on their official website, the women are "superstars, renegades, innovators, heroes, villains, and moms." They represent today's women through their empowering music that transcends all genres.
Last 2020, The Chicks' comeback was marked by their critically-acclaimed album "Gaslighter." With the title track becoming an anthem for all women gaslighted by their partners and "March, March" being the unofficial song for the Black Lives Matter movement, the album became an instant hit. In 2022, the trio announced they would embark on a North American tour, much to their fans' delight. The trek, supported by Patty Griffin and Jenny Lewis, was a massive success. This year, the trio announced they would return on the road to continue their tour. This time, they will be performing in some of the major European cities. The country trailblazer Maren Morris, multi-instrumentalist Ben Harper, and Canadian country-folk band Wild Rivers will be performing on tour on specific dates in support of The Chicks.
"Thank you to all our fans for making last Summer so fun! It's time to get the party going again! We can't wait to see everyone!" The Chicks stated through their Instagram.
On the North American leg of the tour, The Chicks and their amazing band will be stopping at the Bank of NH Pavilion on August 5. Wild Rivers will serve as the concert's opening act. The Toronto-based country-folk band is known for sweet vocal harmonies and laid-back folk-rock tunes, which are evident in some of their hits, including "Kinda Feels Alright," "Wandering Child," and "I Do." Watch this incredible band light up the crowd before the legendary Chicks set the stage ablaze with their performance. Score your tickets today by hitting the "Get Tickets" link.
