The incredible country music trio of The Dixie Chicks will no longer be officially called The Dixie Chicks.
The platinum-selling girl group will be now known as The Chicks, the latest example of sweeping cultural changes brought on by worldwide protests spotlighting racial inequality.
The Chicks made the change quite under the radar, slyly adjusting their social media overnight and releasing a new music video as 'The Chicks'.
In a brief statement on its new website, the band states simply: “We want to meet this moment.” The new video, “March March,” features images of current and historical protests - for women’s rights, gay rights, environmental causes and Black Lives Matter.
