The Dixie Chicks may have delayed their new album amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but they have gifted fans with another song from “Gaslighter” in the meantime.
The beloved country trio debuted a new track titled “Julianna Calm Down” on Friday, May 1 -- the date their comeback album was originally intended to be released.
“Julianna Calm Down” is a quiet and restrained number highlighting Natalie Maines dynamic voice, providing a simple yet powerful message to young women to stand their ground in difficult relationships. The song is named after one of Emily Strayer’s daughters and references all the daughters she and her sister and fellow bandmate, Martie Maguire, are moms too.
In addition to Julianna, there are Harper, Katie, Eva and Violet.
In a message to fans, the Dixie Chicks wrote that while they can’t give fans the full album just yet, they couldn’t let the day pass by without sharing something special with all of them.
“We hope it makes you feel empowered, smile, and strut the f--- around like you’ve got nothing to lose,” they added, referencing the new tune’s lyrics. “We’ll strut through this time together.”
