I have always loved the Dixie Chicks, and I know for a fact that in the past they had a healthy fan base. I do believe that these fans have not stopped loving these ladies and therefore would continue to love their music, once their songs are as emotional and touching as they were in the past.
With catchy songs and beautiful voices, the Dixie Chicks are sure to make a comeback on their new American tour. The reasons for the signing group's downfall are all now water under the bridge, making it easier than ever for them to have comeback tour. America enjoys a song that they can dance to, and this is the group.
Any chance at a this female country group reviving their past success went out the window back in 2003. Unfortunately, lead singer, Natalie Maines, cannot unsay her unpatriotic retorts of our then Commander in Chief, George W. Bush. The Dixie Chicks' talent and fame disappeared overnight when the music world clashed with the political world. Their planned American Tour will undoubtedly fall flat in sales and attendance; only hanging onto a fledgling fan base that supported the band during the original controversy. Some opinions are better left unsaid, especially when your day job is entertainment and not that of global security and stability.
The Dixie Chicks were well known in the late 1990s and early 2000s as an all-female country band. Their music was popular during a period in American music that celebrated female musicians as a commodity. The success of female events such as Lilith Fair in the late 90s helped to propel the Dixie Chicks to fame. However, the band's popularity has waned, just as Lilith Fair has. The controversial comments the Dixie Chicks made about George W. Bush in the 2000s also hurt their reputation with the mainstream country audience. The Dixie Chicks vibe does not seem like it will appeal to the younger generation that creates the trends on social media. Therefore their comeback seems unlikely.
