Chicks Rule: The Story of the Dixie Chicksby Scott Gray, Cathy Repetti
The Chicks got their start
These beautiful, talented young women from Dallas, Texas, have taken the country by storm. Their flawless three part harmony and their skills on guitar, mandolin, dobro, fiddle, and banjo can be heard all over the FM dial, in arenas and concerts from coast to coast, on the Letterman Show, and even at the last Presidential inaugural.
The Chicks got their start jamming for tips on a Dallas street comer in 1989 when teenage sisters Martie and Emily Erwin formed a band with two friends. Over the years, the band underwent several changes of lineup but were repeatedly voted Best Country Band in Dallas. A few years later, they were opening for stars (like Garth Brooks and Clint Black) and even did an ad jingle for McDonald's!). Looking for a new singer, Martie and Emily interviewed Natalie Maines, daughter of steel guitar virtuoso Lloyd Maines. Within weeks, Natalie dropped out of college and moved to Dallas to become a full fledged Chick in 1996.
The Dixie Chicks are known in the music business as "the real deal" for their integrity, enthusiasm, and ability to deliver the goods. "Chicks Rule" will get to the heart of their story, and fans of The Dixie Chicks will get to know them as never before.
