Album Review

Appearing a few months after the budget-line Playlist, The Essential Dixie Chicks is the kind of comprehensive collection this trio deserves. Spanning 30 tracks over two discs, The Essential rounds up all of the Dixie Chicks' big hits but runs in reverse, opening with selections from 2006’s Taking the Long Way, then running back through 2002’s Home, 1999’s Fly, and 1998’s Wide Open Spaces. Some may grumble about the sequencing, but it flows nicely and has all the hits while illustrating the depth of the band’s catalog, which is enough to make it as essential as billed.

Customer Reviews


I have followed and loved the Dixie Chicks since the day their first single was released. I have purchased every CD. I am so sorry that I was never able to attend one of their concerts. It has been a long time since they have recorded and I think it's time for the haters to calm down (that includes all of Country Entertainers) and welcome back one of the very best country entertainer groups there ever was. One thing all of " Country" knows is that God teaches us all to forgive. For if we do not forgive, we will never be forgiven. The most important thing our great Country has is THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA which gives us all the freedom of speech. At a time in history, they felt they had something to say. Well, everybody went crazy. So what? Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But that does not give others the right to Blackball them from making great music and having it played on the airwaves. Come on people, stop with the nonsense. How many others have said nasty vile things and done nasty vile things in the music industry and in Hollywood, and all is forgiven for them. COME ON DIXIE CHICKS, stand up tall and strong and face Nashville square in the eye and say, WE ARE BACK!!! Love you Dixie Chicks.

Formed in 1989 as a Western-themed bluegrass band, the Dixie Chicks eventually became one of the most popular acts in contemporary country music, as well as the highest-selling female group in America. Beginning with 1998's Wide Open Spaces, they struck a balance between the commercial, radio-ready aesthetic of country-pop and the rootsy sound of neo-traditionalist country, a combination that helped distinguish the trio from such concurrent stars as Shania Twain. The Dixie Chicks further distanced...
