History of Dixie Chicks Tour Albums
Dixie Chicks emerged into the country/ folk scene when they released their album “Thank Heavens for Dale Evans back in 1994. Their song “Bring it on Home to Me” was a huge hit, making Dixie Chicks one of the latest phenomena of the time. On February 10, 1994, Dixie Chicks released “Shouldn’t a Told You That” as a follow up to their debut album “Thank Heavens for Dale Evans.” This album didn’t turn out to be as much of a success as its predecessor, but the single “I Wasn’t Looking For You” proved to be an instant hit, which helped drew in huge crowds during the groups concert tours. Since then, the trio has published 14 additional tour albums. With 16 years of tour albums under their belt, several hits still remain popular to this day, including “Taking the Long Way,” “The Long Way Around,” “Not Ready to Make Nice” and “Easy Silence.”
On Friday, the tickets will go on sale.
The group will tour and appear at venues in more than forty locations, including Toronto, Dallas, Detroit, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.
