Alternately goofy and poignant, An Evening with the Dixie Chicks is like getting together with your friends after a hectic day at work: merry diversions, too much personal information spilling like beer, and a slow, soulful authenticity descending as the evening wears on. While the Chicks’ predominantly late-20s, female crowd basks in kinship with the band’s prolific patter about recent divorces and pregnancies, they are also sweetly appreciative of such shimmering, dreamy material as “Believe in Love,” the self-mocking sting of “White Trash Wedding,” and the extra pinch of gravitas that makes its way into a live version of Stevie Nicks’s “Landslide.” The Chicks expertly, almost invisibly, steer their show’s mood with remarkable songs (“Top of the World”) and country hokum (“Travelin’ Soldier”), but it’s the punky sneer of their kill-the-batterer satire “Goodbye Earl” that stands out, gaining another edge of reckless fun amid the Chicks’ constituency. –Tom Keogh

Shut Up & Sing travels with the Dixie Chicks from the peak of their popularity as the national-anthem-singing darlings of country music and top-selling female recording artists of all time, through their infamy after the anti-Bush comment made by the group’s lead singer in 2003. Oscar-winning documentary director Barbara Kopple and Cecilia Peck follow the Dixie Chicks from 2003-2006 when they were under political attack and received death threats, all while continuing to live their lives, have children, and of course make music. At a time when the United States is fighting for democracy and freedom overseas, Shut Up & Sing raises questions about our own right to freedom of speech and documents the difficulty of having a genuine public debate on international policy in the political climate leading up to the Iraq War. The film also illustrates musicians’ power to influence and inform the public discourse on significant policy issues. Michael Rechtshaffen praises Shut Up & Sing in The Hollywood Reporter: “A bracingly candid documentary portrait of the artists in a career-defining transition, the film simultaneously offers a unique perspective of a nation at a similarly significant crossroads. It also happens to be a lot of fun.”

Dixie Chicks

Loaded with exclusive color photos and revealing biographical details, this first photo album of the Dixie Chicks tells their story with more that 50 gorgeous photos. The “Chicks’” founding members—Emily Robison and Martie Seidel—had been playing bluegrass and Western swing on Dallas street corners since the 1980s. The addition of lead singer Natalie Maines in 1995 spurred them to create a new sound and image for themselves. Examining the musical and stylistic transformation of the group, this book looks at their early tumultuous years, as well as their more recent climb to the top of the charts, with the album Fly.
