Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
A rollicking tale of the rise of country music's most popular girl band, Dixie Chicks offers a spirited look at the Grammy Award-winning trio and their ascent to the top of the charts.
Library Journal
With an amazing amount of pluck, the Dixie Chicks made it to the top in ten years with their major-label debut, Wide Open Spaces (1998). Over the past two years, they have received a blitz of awards (including "Top Duet or Group" from the Academy of Country Music and two Grammys for "Best Country Album") and are showing signs of crossover success la Garth Brooks and Shania Twain. Dickerson, a music journalist and author of two books nominated for the Ralph J. Gleason Award (Goin' Back to Memphis; That's Alright, Elvis), follows the career of the Dixie Chicks from buskers on the streets of Dallas to nursing-home giggers to A-list performers at Radio City Music Hall. Interestingly, the trio's former lead singer, Laura Lynch, who was kicked out when fiddler Martie Seidel and guitarist Emily Robison wanted to change musical direction, offered commentary--but not the Chicks themselves. This doesn't, however, result in bad-mouthing. Dickerson also interviewed many fans whose web sites greatly fostered the Chicks's popularity. With sensitivity, Dickerson writes about a group of singers earnest in their love of music. Recommended for all public library collections.--Kathleen Sparkman, Baylor Univ., Waco, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

    Chicks Do It Better

    This book was amazing to read! I learned so much about Natalie, Martie and Emily that I didn't know before. Also learned a lot about the other Chicks, Robin and Laura. Awesome!! Having the internet fans involved is also a plus .. I had a blast helping out with it. Thanks!!
