The Chicks’ ‘March, March’ reintroduces the post-‘Dixie’ trio.

In the last couple of weeks Lady Antebellum dropped ‘Antibellum’ and the Dixie Chicks dropped “Dixie” Such is the heightened sensitivity about race in America. The Chicks have been swimming against the stream of country music orthodoxy ever since lead singer Natalie Mains criticized the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. But they have prospered nonetheless.  The name changes coincided with the release of a new self-conscious protest anthem, “March March.” The lyrics challenge racism, the proliferation of guns, underfunded school systems, threats to reproductive justice and global warming.
