Dixie Chicks - Fly

Regular price $35.00 $0.00

It was 1998's Wide Open Spaces - their first album together as the Dixie Chicks - that made the trio of Natalie Maines, Emily Robison, and Martie Maguire massive stars, able to garner both critical acclaim and enormous sales in one fell swoop. But it was the follow-up the next year that put them on the path to legendary status. Even though Maines would later admit that she now has a hard time listening to Fly (she thought her Southernesque accent was too affected), it's actually now a North Star of modern twang: There's sin, heartbreak, dancing, and a ton of fast-picking banjo. And though the album was embraced by a Nashville that would later shout out the Chicks, it's also a blueprint for how to toy gleefully with the rules - challenging the ways that women of the genre are supposed to behave, how they approach their instruments, and the topics they are supposed to sing about. - Apple Music
