Country Band ‘The Dixie Chicks’ Changes Name In Wake Of BLM Protests

The Country band ‘The Dixie Chicks’ have now changed their names to ‘The Chicks’ in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests.

The move to drop ‘Dixie’ from their name appears to an attempt to placate woke critics who may find any allusion to the American south offensive.

As The New York Post reports:

Amid calls for the removal of Confederate symbols and nostalgia prompted by the Black Lives Matter movement, the notoriously liberal country music trio formerly known as the Dixie Chicks have finally decided that “Dixie” had to die…

n Thursday, the 13-time Grammy-winning band announced the change with a new music video, titled “March March,” released under the new Chicks moniker. Representatives for the group confirmed the name to the New York Times.

“We want to meet this moment,” reads a brief statement on their website.

Calls for the removal of monuments to slaveholders and other tributes to the Confederacy have forced artists, especially those who identify with Southern culture, to reckon with the ways they romanticize the pre-Civil War South.

Weak, stupid women. So I suppose if someone’s name us Dixie they’ll be expected to change their name too. Or Dixie cups.
Everyone allowing the FEW to control us is just cowardly and ignorant!

I had NO idea the “Dixie Chicks” were still performing after their “Trash America” concert series! But, meh, who cares about these fake “wokes” — demokkkrats, the vile racist, pedophile and rape supporting cancer of this world.

AMEN TO THAT ! It’s just another move of the demoncrats to cause trouble & oust MR. TRUMP from another term in office. I pray to GOD folks are smart enough to see this & vote to have MR. TRUMP as our leader for another four years & given back the last four years fighting against the demondcrats.

They didn’t kowtow. They embraced the snot-nosed delinquents. And their name. It should correctly describe them. Lefty Grammas perhaps.

They were “Beloved” until Natalie Mains opened her yap and dissed GW Bush and eventually country music fans. Doesn’t surprise me at all. They are no longer played on most country stations.

When BLM starts to contribute something to our society and economy, let them have have their say. Until then, they should shut the hell up. So far they have been a drain on the taxpayers of the US.

Now i see nothing which says that the Band was forced to change any thing that was a personal choice like two other bands have already done.
Trying to do something to show respect to the minority.

All these white liberals bowing to a few Black anarchists to ease their guilt is hilarious to me. BLM may once have been about the Black minorities, but today it’s about the Benjamin’s baby. Other white liberals throwing money at a group of Marxist minorities in the hopes of easing their guilt for past oppression’s against others. I have been oppressed, send me that money and I promise I won’t riot, burn, rob or shoot anyone.

SHOULD HAVE KEPT THE NAME – Makes no difference your irrelevant anyway
I’d spit in their eye
However, since I am no fan of theirs or Bushes, it matters not except to cave to radicals who could careless about Anyones lives but their own
Also in 2006, the Dixie Chicks released a documentary, Shut Up and Sing, which followed the three women as they dealt with the public and media scrutiny following the incident, including threats of physical harm and death wishes. They then went on an indefinite hiatus, with Maines releasing a solo album, and Robison and Maguire forming a duo, Court Yard Hounds.
The Dixie Chicks toured Canada and Europe in 2013 and 2014, and in the U.S. in 2016, but Maines admits that their return to being a mainstream country act is unlikely: “I feel like we are tainted,” she concedes. “I don’t know if we put a tour up, if people would come.” However, the band has plans for a new album, Gaslighter, and, reportedly, an arena tour in 2020.
Maines, for her part, isn’t afraid to poke a little fun at her infamous comments, while also standing firm in her beliefs: Leading up to the 2016 presidential election, she riffed on her 2003 remarks to criticize presidential candidate Ted Cruz, and she’s been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.

“tainted” because they don’t know when to STFU. No one cares about their politics. And I hope all these lefties that think it’s ok to trash the country are losing money.

First of all who really gives a damn what they change their name to. They dropped to their knees to pay honor to a bunch of Anarchists who more than likely don’t listen to or buy their music anyway. But since they bowed down to one group within the mob they will soon need to bow again when the so called Feminists hear that they renamed their band the CHICKS. After all the name CHICKS shows distain for women. Dear chicks, you will never satisfy the mob, no matter what you do some sub-group within the mob will find fault with whatever you call your band and you will have to kowtow once again.

Generally speaking, beloved band is a gross overstatement. Did they really play music. Don’t remember any or one song. Do remember a nasty foray into politics during W. Bush terms. So I guess the whosits are now a two hit wonder in the political genre.

I watched their video of “March March” and it shows the protests including BLM and thought they would lose a lot of their supporters because of the BLM inclusion. I am reading all these comments and see that I am wrong they are losing most if not all of their remaining
fans. Bowing down to the PC Cancel Culture is going to be the nail in the coffin. R.I.P

I won’t change a damn thing for them. They are all going to hell anyway so who cares. I used to buy your records a loooooong time ago, but that won’t happen any more. What will you bow down to next.

SSoooo, the name change. Let me tell you that you are setting “us” up for a huge fall. Isn’t calling you “Chicks”, SEXIST? Oh yeah. You just made everyone that even utters that name is now being a sexist. No thought went into the name change. As for being “beloved”, I think that you misspelled begone! You can rewrite your history but we all know what is going on. Sell outs to the little mice that say, “shame”. you have no heart.

Forced?? No not forced – pressured and caved!! If they were even young just starting out, I might understand caving, but they probably don’t need to work and I would rather take that road and find a better route than to give in to bullies who are pushing a Marxist agenda!! Whatever BLM was and never a very “good” thing, they now admit to being Marxists and all the athletes, celebrities that are going with that! Pah! I suppose their biggest example is the old USSR and they agradized athletes and great stars, though the actors should keep in mind not their celebrity. They were more with ballet, for sure – that sort of thing that they could show to the world. Venezuela didn’t even get that far – they like us were very prosperous and as a country rich in oil UNTIL they got shoved into Marxism. Any of these athletes, celebrities visiting down there lately?? Just as an aside – to the athletes . . . aren’t any of your parents cops, brothers, sisters??? You don’t seem to give a hang that at my last count, that was yesterday, 9 have been murdered, many others injured, some badly, and one 29 year old will never walk again, barring a miracle!

Would be great if you actually knew of what you spoke. They are not a “beloved” country band. We threw them out when they criticized our country and President while overseas. They need to remove “Chicks” from their name and then will completely disappear from sight.

How about liberal hoes band.this thing has been coming along time it’s time to get it on and get done with it. Whites have more than paid for their part in slavery. Trillions in welfare and other special rights. But blacks hate whites for their own failures. So this time there will be no claiming down the Democrats have let there property know that’s they want us exterminated and no one will be there to stop them and the left will disarm the whites so they will not have any means of defending themselves.
