Interesting facts and trivia about The Chicks. By Songfacts®.

Known for most of their career as Dixie Chicks, they were named after the song "Dixie Chicken" by Little Feat. That song is about a woman who charms guys into falling in love with her, then takes them for all they're worth. On June 25, 2020, they changed their name to "The Chicks," dropping the "dixie" because it refers to the American South during a time of slavery.

Dixie Chicks independently released their debut album, Thank Heavens for Dale Evans in 1990. It was funded by Penny Cook, daughter of Texas Senator John Tower, who gave them $10,000 to make a record. At the time they were more of a bluegrass band, but became more mainstream country when Natalie Maines was added and original members Laura Lynch and Robin Lynn Macy left. Commercial success came in 1998, following the release of Wide Open Spaces, the trio's major label debut on Sony Music's Monumental Records.

In 2001, Dixie Chicks sued Sony Records for $4.1 million in unpaid royalties. The band ultimately settled out of court, with Sony awarding the trio their own record label imprint, Open Wide Records, in turn affording Dixie Chicks more control over their music.
