The Dixie Chicks formed in 1989 in Dallas, Texas. After years of struggle and personnel changes, the group achieved large-scale country and pop commercial success starting in the late 1990s, with hit songs such as "Wide Open Spaces", "Cowboy Take Me Away", and "Long Time Gone".

They became known for their lively group personae, instrumental virtuosity, fashion sense, and outspoken views. In particular, Natalie Maines' public criticism of President George W. Bush on the eve of the 2003 invasion of Iraq led to considerable controversy for the group, causing them to lose a large part of their core country audience, but gain a new if somewhat smaller audience in the process.

Dixie Chicks are the highest selling female group in any genre. They hold the distinction of being the only country group in history and the only female group of any genre to earn back-to-back Diamond Awards signifying 10 million in record sales.







PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILMS OF WORLDWIDE JAM MEMBERS FEATURE IN NEW DIXIE CHICKS VID

U.S. band Dixie Chicks who have just commenced an extensive tour of their native homeland, stumbled across Worldwide JAM and Parkour recently. Apparently they were so taken with the visual dynamics that the call went out to fast-track a video that will be shown on a massive screen behind the band during their performances.

After trawling through the Pics&Vids pages of the Worldwide JAM site, London based production company 'The Film Factory' invited a number of photographers and filmmakers to submit images and footage to be re-edited into a four minute film.

The actual screen used to play-out the film is very low resolution and nothing like your TV or computer monitor. As such the completed edit had to use images and footage with high levels of contrast that could be easily viewed by the audience even if they were down in the mosh-pit or way back in the next state.
