Dixie Chicks Get NBC TV Special In December

The Dixie Chicks will star in their first primetime television concert special in two years to be telecast this December on NBC. The trio – singer Natalie Maines and sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire–will perform songs from their third album, “Home (Open Wide/Columbia/Monument),” which will be released August 27, as well as hits from their debut album, “Wide Open Spaces,” and their second album, “Fly.” Shot during a sold-out two-night concert at Los Angeles’ Kodak Theater on August 15–16, the special will bring the Chicks unparalleled musical style to a national television audience for the first time in two years.

Produced and directed by Joel Gallen (“America: A Tribute to Heroes,” “The MTV Movie Awards”), the special is a presentation from Tenth Planet Productions in association with Woolly Puddin’ Films LLC. Gallen also produced and directed the Chicks’ debut television special, “Dixie Chicks: On the Fly,” which aired on NBC on November 20, 2000 and scored the highest adult 18-49 rating, a 4.9, of any concert special telecast that season. Twelve million viewers watched an average minute of "Dixie Chicks: On the Fly."
