    Dixie Chicks drop the "Dixie". Now they'e just "The Chicks"

    The Dixie Chicks have changed their name to 'The Chicks'

    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 comes one month after the death of George Floyd, and four weeks of protests and national conversations on systemic racism.

    It also 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.

    The use of "Dixie" — and its association with the Confederate states — has come under renewed scrutiny in recent weeks. The Chicks' former name is a play on “Dixie Chicken,” a song and album by rock group Little Feat.

    The Chicks aren't the first country artists to drop a "Dixie." In 2018, Dolly Parton changed the name of her "Dixie Stampede" dinner attraction in Pigeon Forge to "Dolly Parton's Stampede."

    It’s called promoting yourself through virtue signaling. Gave them a big pop in the media and will give them a short term pop of $$$.
