Dixie Chicks’ last studio album was 2006’s Taking the Long Way. After touring that record, they took a hiatus during which vocalist Natalie Maines released a solo album (2013’s Mother) and sisters Emily Strayer and Martie Maguire formed the bluegrass duo Court Yard Hounds. The Dixie Chicks reunited for tours in 2013 and 2016. The latter tour was documented on the 2017 live album DCX MMXVI Live, featuring their take on Beyoncé’s “Daddy Lessons” (which sampled their 2002 single “Long Time Gone”).
