Dixie Chicks planning nine-city Canadian tour
Outing will the trio's first Canadian tour in seven years
The Dixie Chicks may still be shunning audiences in the U.S.A., but they'll be making their fans in Canada happy when they embark on the nine-city Long Time Gone Tour 2013.
The trio announced the tour in a post on their Web site, which read, "We’re excited to announce the Dixie Chicks Long Time Gone Tour 2013 through select markets in Canada. This follows the incredibly warm reception from Canadian fans at this summer's Craven Country Jamboree, Cavendish Beach Music Festival, and RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest, and marks the first full tour for the Dixie Chicks through Canada in seven years. We had such a great time playing for our Canadian fans this summer that we've been inspired to come back for more."
The group members have been pursuing individual projects of late. Lead singer Natalie Maines released the solo album "Mother" earlier this year. Meanwhile, siblings Emily Robison and Martie Maguire have released two albums as the duo Courtyard Hounds, including one last month. The Dixie Chicks have been dormant as a recording act since the 2006 release of their Rick Rubin-produced last album, "Taking The Long Way."

Craig - Bush rotten - Obama Great!
Kind of all gets into point of view, eh? I guess there are no shades of grey in you life either.
And kind of speaks against the "we all need to speak to one another, understand one another and be kind to one another" thoughts often shared by the left, doesn't it?
So the performer you agree with publically is simply misunderstood, while the performer you do not agree with should instantly be fired.
How kind and understanding of you. Your example shines with human kindness.
Oh, by the way... did you know that Obama has dropped more bombs on more countries we are not at war with, than all the other Nobel Peace Prize recipients combined?
Natalie spoke only her opinion, and that is one of our RIGHTS as US citizens. I'm from Texas and I felt the same way. The whole "war" was a scam for Bush and Cheney. There were no weapons of mass destruction and look how many soldiers lost their lives and limbs for no reason. I fully support the troops, however they should not have been put in harms way for Bush's agenda. The Dixie Chicks suffered for people being closed minded and not listening to what was actually said and paying attention to what was going on.
The whole world is laughing at the US. The US will soon collapse and will no longer be a superpower. Are you going to defend the failed foreign policy of a failed president, a president that you knew all along was steering your country in the wrong direction? Yeah, suddenly it became hip to be a redneck once again and where did your beloved country end up? In the hole for good, that's where!
So go ahead and make complete pigs of yourselves. You'll only have a short time to do it. enjoy mouthing off because when the bottom finally falls out, everyone will be pointing the finger at you. War over health care and education. Deficit spending over a balanced budget. Handing truckloads of money to rich bankers over repairing your country's infrastructure and creating real jobs.
No wonder America sucks. The rest of the world is better off without you.
good going Dixie Chicks, glad to see you back! what happened to you all was wrong wrong wrong. all we here anymore is Obama bashing, right & left. the incident at the MIssouri State Fair 2 weeks ago where the rodeo clown puts on an Obama mask and asks the crowd how many people want to see Obama run over by a bull. is everyone calling for a boycot of the MIssouri State Fair and all things Missouri ? Natalie Maines just simply made a verbal comment, which is free to do, and all this crap came down on them because of it. but a rodeo clown in Missouri asks how many people want to see Obama run down by a rodeo bull, and really nothing comes of it.
Natalie Maines, you keep standing tall, what happened to you and the Dixie Chicks wasnt right. your song "Not Ready To Make Nice" is the most honest, real, song I have ever heard in my life.
Ms. Bell ; Osama is dead because of the policies put in place by G.W , and the OUTSTANDING work of all the men and women at JSOC & SOCOM ! Not some little punk-assed muslim who was playing cards when the HIT went down . According to his own press secretary , and speaking of lying , there isn't enough time in the next two days to answer you about all the scandals and lies told by this radical Jihadist member of the Muslim Brotherhood , and his administration you revere so highly . And Yes ! The Koran says it is acceptable to deny being a Muslim , as long as you are denying it to a Infidel !
I was at Jaime Zapata's funeral , and Brian Terry's memorial service ! Caused by Obastard / Holder / and Napalitano's , FAST & FURIOUS program , so don't even go down this road with me . I.R.S. , N.S.A. , FEMA Camps being constructed , and 17 other scandals , all coming to light AFTER the election ! What a freakin surprise ! Put down the PITCHER of Kool-Aid , and back away slowly , Nut-job .....
After reading every comment posted here , I've come to the conclusion that Dumb-o-crats are extremely thin-skinned when it comes to their "Annointed One" ! The vile , and vicious attacks that came from the peace & love , can't we all get along crowd toward G.W. were off the scale , but these wine & cheese whiney Libro-crats can't even handle a rodeo clown , mimicking the REAL clown in the District of Corruption ! I only hope and pray that you liberals never have to find out what the "REAL" cost of your "Socialist Utopia" is , cause you ain't gonna like it !
I support the Trailer Tramps going to Canada , but only if they take Fonda , Sarandon , Striesand , Valerie Jarret , and ALL the Kardashians with them . They're the "real" traitors & Haters ........ Of America !
