Xfinity Center | Mansfield, Massachusetts
It's time to strp on those cowboy boots and get ready for a night of some of the best country the US has to offer! Internationally renowned, Grammy Award-winning all-female band the Dixie Chicks are coming to Xfinity Center on Tuesday 14th June, for a comeback night that will surely prove unforgettable! With luscious, intricate harmonies and bluegrass-tinged country pop/rock, they captivate and entertain in equal measure!
The Dixie Chicks started out as a Western-themed bluegrass four-piece in Dallas, Texas, in 1989. The band went on to become one of the most popular acts in contemporary country music, and the highest-selling female group in America. Their commercial and mainstream success came with the release of their debut album, 1998's Wide Open Spaces. The Dixie Chicks distanced themselves from country's traditional music stylings and conservative political boundaries as their career progressed, but although their outspoken beliefs effected sales for a while, the Dixie Chicks continued to be a compelling band in concert and on record, boasting three-part harmonies and an instrumental prowess that was virtually unparalleled among similar groups. To date, Dixie Chicks have won 13 Grammy Awards, including five in 2007 for Taking the Long Way – which received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year – and "Not Ready to Make Nice", a single from that album.
