[ # ] The Dixie Chicks almost went by MEN
July 19th, 2020 under Dixie Chicks, Stephen Colbert


A few weeks ago, The Dixie Chicks revealed that they were dropping the Dixie from the name, and they will just go by The Chicks from now on.

On Thursday, when they were on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, they told him why they changed their name. Natalie Maines said that they have wanted to do it for a long time, and now was the perfect time to do with everything going on.

In fact, they tried out different names like DCX, The Chicks, MEN (Martie, Emily, and Natalie), Puss’n’Boots, and Wooly Puddin’. Finally, they wound up settling with The Chicks, but I wish they would have gone with MEN.

The band was not only there to share details about their new name, but they were also there to talk about Gaslighter, their first album in 14 years that came out on Friday.

They recently released the single, March, March, which is a protesting anthem. It is so relevant that you would think they just wrote it. Emily told the CBS host that they started writing it two years ago after they went to March For Our Lives demonstration in DC.

Why we are marching might change, but the basics will always remain the same. I can’t wait to live in a world where we don’t have to March, March.

To hear them sing the song, then
