Title: Dixie Chicks Pounce On Racial Tensions, Drop 'Dixie' From Name To Promote New Album

The Dixie Chicks have changed their name ahead of their first album in 14 years, dropping the "Dixie" and renaming themselves "The Chicks."

The move comes amid national protests over the history of race relations in the United States - and was perhaps inspired by a Jun 17 article in Variety titled "After Lady Antebellum, Is It Time for the Dixie Chicks to Rethink Their Name?"

As Variety's Jeremy Helligar writes:

“Dixie,” for the record, is the epitome of white America, a celebration of a Southern tradition that is indivisible from Black slaves and those grand plantations where they were forced to toil for free. The origin of the word, though, is unclear.

One theory links it to Jeremiah Dixon, who along with Charles Mason, drew the Mason-Dixon line as the border between four states that later became the unofficial separation between free states and slaves states. Other less likely theories trace it back to a slave owner from Manhattan as well as “dix,” a word written on Louisiana’s 10-dollar bills pre-Civil War that’s French for “ten.” -Variety

On Thursday, "The Chicks" - Natalie Maines, Emily Strayer, and Martie Maguire  - released a new single from their upcoming album, Gaslighter, titled "March March."

As Rolling Stone describes it: "Lyrically, Maines addresses everything from Greta Thunberg and youth climate protests to gun violence and underpaid school teachers, over a music video that edits together footage from recent Black Lives Matter protests and police confrontations.

Toward the end, as Maguire dives into a fiery fiddle solo, the names of black Americans killed by police flash onscreen, and the video concludes with a message from the Chicks — “Use your voice. Use your vote.” — along with links to various social justice organizations and nonprofits."

In 2003, the band drew condemnation when they told a London audience they were "ashamed" of President George W. Bush, leading to boycotts and a lengthy hiatus.

Chicks is derogatory toward women. They are now ”The”.

And of course, there’s also the trio formerly known as Lady Antebellum. On June 11, the group’s members announced they were changing their name to Lady A, to distance themselves from the racist implications of the word “antebellum,” which is literally Latin for “before the war” but is generally used to describe Southern life before the Civil War.

Unfortunately, they apparently didn’t realize that Anita White, a Black female blues singer based in Seattle, has been using that name for 20 years. What irony?

They drop a word representing everything that’s been taken from Black people and end up taking something else from a Black person.(2 images)

They haven't had an album in 14 years BECAUSE they dumped on the south,and now they are coming out with a new album,no doubt self-financed,and think the time is right to double-down on hatred for the south.

Maybe they should try a gangsta rap album next time?

Also,I am VERY disappointed in the wusses of Lady A,who used to be worth listening to,but will never again get a dime from me.

Truth to tell,half of Nashville are secret yankees. Dolly Parton is a closeted lesbian/swings both ways,and so does her Goddaughter,whose father sang "achy breaky heart"

Unlike the rest of them,Parton is smart enough she has kept this stuff in private and hasn't promoted it. She knows if she did,Dollywood would die.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

If you watch the first 30 seconds, that is what it sounds like to me.

Turns out the Ladies "appropriated" the name of an established black blues singer for their own.

Still awaiting word on whether "Confederate Railroad" will cave as well.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.
