DIXIE CHICKS TO PARTICIPATE IN ARTIST WAR CHEST EFFORT

The Dixie Chicks are just one of the several music groups that will participate in a benefit concert to aid the Recording Artists Coalition.

The Coalition plans to build a war chest that they hope will help them to lobby the California State legislature to change the law that allows record labels to hold performers to contracts that seem excessively long.

The concerts will be held in Los Angeles on February 26 -- the night before the Grammys -- and other performers scheduled to take part in the event include: Sheryl Crow, the Eagles, Billy Joel, Elton John, Stevie Nicks, No Doubt, Offspring, Ozzy Osborne, Weezer and Don Henley.
