The Dixie Chicks are the latest band to change their name in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. The band has rebranded themselves “The Chicks,” dropping the word “Dixie” from their name, as the word is associated with the Confederate South.
“We want to meet this moment,” read the front page of The Chicks website, which now is thechicks.com. Lady Antebellum made a similar choice recently, changing their name to Lady A.
The band also released a new single today, titled “March March,” along with a video. “‘If your voice held no power, they wouldn’t try to silence you.’ – unknown. Use your VOICE. Use your VOTE,” wrote the band in the video’s description.
