The Dixie Chicks Are Changing Their Name, Because 'Dixie' Is Apparently Racist

Chalk another one up to Cancel Culture - except that this time, nobody really cares.

The Dixie Chicks have officially dropped the "Dixie" from their name, citing concerns over the words ties to "racism" - and much to the consternation of their four remaining fans, I'm sure.

The band's social media pages has been updated to reflect the change, as the all-girl trio will now simply go by "The Chicks" in an attempt to be more "inclusive" to people who're offended by words. The new name will accompany the group's comeback album and their newest single, "March March," which praises Black Lives Matter protests - including the most recent unrest following the death of George Floyd.

The move comes just a few weeks after fellow country group Lady Antebellum dropped the "Antebellum" from their name, saying that they will instead go by "Lady A." That change, of course, proved even more problematic than their original moniker (which was offending exactly no one), as a black female singer who goes by the stage name "Lady A" accused the band of asserting their "white privilege" and overshadowing her 20-year music career.
