You probably thought they could not possibly produce anotherrecord of amazing songs, but the Dixie Chicks have struckagain. Their new album, “Fly,” is filled withballads as well as songs you can get down and boogie to. Thefirst song on the album is featured in the latest Richard Gereand Julia Roberts movie, “Runaway Bride.” [See page40 for a review of this movie.]
Many people havequestioned the lyrics of the recently released hit,”Goodbye Earl.” In the song, two women devise a planto kill one’s abusive husband and they get away with it. Somefans think the Chicks are singing about an issue that is tooserious for country music, although they state on the coverthat they “do not advocate premeditated murder.” Thesong is meant to be humorous.
In the last 18 months theDixie Chicks have broken a number of records and won BestSingle of the Year, Best Music Video and Best Vocal Group atthe 1999 CMA Awards.
With two top-selling albums, they aresure to conquer the world. I recommend their new album toanyone with a passion for harmonies and great country music.
