The Dixie Chicks Change Name to “The Chicks”

The Dixie Chicks Change Name to “The Chicks”

According to their new website and social media handles, The Dixie Chicks—Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer—have rebranded as “The Chicks.” As of press time, the Chicks have not made a public announcement.

The trio’s name change comes after weeks of social unrest that has put a spotlight on systematic racism and discrimination.

“Dixie” is a reference to the Southern United States, notably the Confederate States during the Civil War. The name came from the title of a song composed in 1859 by Daniel Decatur Emmett, which was a popular marching song of the Confederate Army.

Earlier this month, Lady Antebellum changed its name to Lady A to recognize “those suffering from spoken and unspoken injustices.”

The Chicks will release their upcoming eighth studio album, Gaslighter, on July 17. The Chicks dropped a new song, “March March” on June 25, which you can listen to below.
