Two musically talented sisters, and two of their friends, formed a band in Texas in 1989. They were playing mostly Bluegrass, and Country music. They played festivals and small venues for six years without attracting a record deal.
In 1990, a friend gave them ten thousand dollars to record an album, and things began to turn around for the women.
After some changes to the music and the group, they finally had a hit in 1998 with, ‘There’s Your Trouble”.
The Dixie Chicks have gone on to be one of the best selling groups in Country Music. They had won 13 Grammy Awards by the end of 2015, including ‘Album of the Year’ for, ‘Taking the Long Way’.
