The Chicks Replace Lady A at the Craven Country Jamboree
Today festival organizers announced the new Saturday headline act for the 2013 Craven Country Jamboree - the Dixie Chicks.
"We knew we had to find something extra special to replace Lady
Antebellum when the band canceled their summer dates due to Hilary
Scott's pregnancy," said Kim Blevins, Director of marketing. "We are
extremely excited that we can offer a taste of country music royalty to
the Craven Country Jamboree. And it won't be a regular show - not only
will our fans see Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, the
three original members, this is a greatest hits package. The Craven date
will be one of the only opportunities fans of the band will have to see
them live. This is an incredibly special moment for Chicks fans and the
Craven Country Jamboree."
The Dixie Chicks are the highest
selling female group of any genre. They hold the distinction of being
the only country music group in history and the only female group of any
genre to earn back to back Diamond awards for selling over 10 million
albums. As a greatest hits show, their performance will be one big
sing-a-long as with well-loved anthems like "Not Ready to Make Nice,"
"Wide Open Spaces," "Cowboy Take Me Away," "Landslide," "Ready to Run,"
"Good-bye Earl," and "Sin Wagon" to name but a few.
Chicks join country superstar headliners Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw,
Scotty McCreery, Phil Vassar, Brantley Gilbert, Doc Walker, Sawyer
Brown, Chad Brownlee, Gloriana, High Valley, Small Town Pistols, Jason
Blaine, and country legends Randy Travis and Bill Anderson. Also
returning is the funniest duo in comedy - Williams and Ree.
"This is the biggest, deepest lineup of any festival in Canada," said
Blevins. "We always strive to bring something for everyone from the
biggest names in country music, to the best Canadian acts, to amazing
classic country, all at the lowest price."
