If the Dixie Chicks were ashamed of George W. Bush, what will happen if Donald Trump wins in November? Their heads could evaporate in a trio of Scanners-like explosions, but more likely they’ll just relocate to Canada and change their name to Saskatchewan Chicks.

That potential future is months away, a minute-hand tick compared to Dixie Chicks’ 27-year history. The Dallas band initially consisted of vocalist Laura Lynch, guitarist/vocalist Robin Macy and multi-instrumentalist sisters Martie and Emily Erwin (who eventually married into their current last names, Maguire and Robison, respectively). Taking their moniker from Little Feat’s “Dixie Chicken,” the quartet dressed in cowgirl garb and delivered straight Bluegrass/Country. Read more about the band in this week's Sound Advice.


The Dixie Chicks play Riverbend Music Center Wednesday with Augustana and Josh Herbert. More info/tickets: riverbend.org .
