Another show-stopper by the Dixie Chicks

I've been a fan of these three Texan beauties for years now. I love their energy, their spunk, their lyrics, and especially their playfulness. They are superstars in the country world but they come across as "the girls next door." I love that. I have seen them live, and was amazed at the range of their lead singer-- Natalie, and even more amazed at how loyal a fan base they have. Everyone in that arena knew every word. The show I caught was actually before their CD "Home" came out, and they (of course) let us all hear a few samples. Even though that was the only time we couldn't sing along, the melodies were worth swaying too, and a few of the lines were the type that you try to remember so you can look it up when you get home and get on the "pre-sale list" for the newest CD.

"Home" was their third major CD, and was praised for being a "more relaxed" Dixie Chicks...it was their "we have come to peace with who we are" CD, and I love it. A few of the songs that really stick out are "Home," "Traveling Soldier," and "Landslide"--a cover of Stevie Nicks original hit. This CD sent a meditative-type message, which left you with a good feeling, a warmth...which may just account for its title-- "Home."

Either way, its def worth picking up--or these days-- downloading... some great tunes on there for sure.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I love the Dixie Chicks too, and although their remake of Landslide was great, I still prefer the Stevie Nicks version. Just have to vote for the original :)

Dixie Chicks are what you would call "The Gateway Group" for people who are nervous to venture into country music but are curious what is on the other side. I admire this group of musicians for many reasons: they are talented musicians, accomplished songwriters, strong female role models, and original thinkers. This album is especially dear to me. It has so many beautiful original works plus a stand out remake of Fleetwood Mac's powerful ballad Landslide. The simple, subtle country undertones that …
