NEW YORK, Oct. 19 -- The Dixie Chicks treated fans to an
intimate performance during a taping of VH1 Storytellers at the Los Angeles
Theater in Los Angeles on September 20. The concert, which benefited the
VH1 Save the Music Foundation, will premiere on VH1, Saturday, October 28
at 9PM. While their songs tell a story, The Dixie Chicks reveal the
inspirations behind some of their classic hits as well as a few of their
future classics, such as "Not Ready To Make Nice" which turned their whole
world around...and they kind of like it. Viewers will also get to know the
"Chicks" a little better as they show their lighter side and reveal a bit
about their personal lives.
The episode treats fans to a unique experience as The Dixie Chicks
perform new songs from their latest album Taking The Long Way in addition
to previous hits. In quintessential "Storytellers" form, the Chicks
(Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire) answer questions from
fans and in a new interview give an honest and revealing look at the
stories behind the songs.
Viewers will have the opportunity to hear the inspiration behind such
hits as "Wide Open Spaces" and "Cowboy Take Me Away" and from their new
album Taking The Long Way, "The Long Way Around," "Lubbock Or Leave It,"
"Silent House," and their current hit and answer to all the political
upheaval they stirred up, "Not Ready To Make Nice."
