FRIDAY, AUGUST 12

DIXIE CHICKS

Three election cycles ago, Dixie Chicks landed themselves in hot water when Natalie Maines announced to a London crowd that the band was ashamed to share a home state with then-president George W. Bush. The band was derided for being unpatriotic and was sandbagged by the country music industry for speaking up. The 2006 album Taking the Long Way did well commercially and netted five Grammys, but the controversy still forced Dixie Chicks to quietly slip off the map. More than a decade later, though, they're back, as fierce as ever, with a whole new political circus to fan their flames. The "sorry-not-sorry" kiss-off of "Not Ready to Make Nice," from Taking the Long Way, has only grown more powerful over the years. Old favorites like the barn-burning "Goodbye Earl" still make for a good time. They've also worked a cover of Beyoncé's "Daddy Lessons" into their set, which is probably worth the ticket price alone. —Allison Hussey
