The Dixie Chicks are now known as The Chicks.
The country trio changed its social media handles, and their official website now redirects to thechicks.com.
“We want to meet this moment,” reads a message posted on the site, signed by members Martie Maguire, Natalie Maines and Emily Strayer. They’ve also released a new song, “March March,” with a video filled with footage of protests through the ages, and listing the names of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and dozens more.
The move follows fellow country trio Lady Antebellum’s decision to change their name to Lady A, renouncing the term used particularly to describe existing before the American Civil War, and “associations that weigh down this word,” including ties to slavery.
