Slip on your western-styled boots and dust off that old cowboy hat because the Dixie Chicks are coming to town! And according to Emily Robison, “there’s no telling what will happen this time” when she and her fellow band mates, Natalie Maines and Martie Maguire, return to the states for their first U.S. tour in nearly a decade.
The trio confirmed the exciting news of the upcoming, North American tour, dubbed DCX MMXVI, in a video that the Grammy-winning group posted to their Facebook page.

“Just when you thought you were safe, America, we’re back!” Maines teases.
The anticipated U.S. tour, which will follow the band’s spring, European tour, will kick off this summer on June 1, starting in Cincinnati. The Dixie Chicks will wrap up their U.S. concerts on Oct. 10 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The ladies will perform in more than 40 cities across America, from New York to San Francisco.
Although the Dixie Chick’s last, Grammy-winning album, “Taking the Long Way,” was released in 2006, the women have continued to make music. Sisters Robison and Maguire partnered together to create the band Court Yard Hounds, releasing two albums in 2010 and 2013, while Maines tried her hand at a solo career, putting out the album “Mother” in 2013, which she described as the “most natural music” that she’s ever made.
When the girls embarked on their new journeys, fans questioned what this would mean for the Dixie Chicks. But Maines promised during an interview with CBS in 2013 that the beloved band wasn’t breaking up.
"I don't know what we are," Maines said. "Well, we're not over, but I don't know if there's new music coming."
