They've been blazing trails in country music for two years now, but the Dixie Chicks have scored mainstream popularity -- all without compromising their twangy-hip sound.
The Chicks just starred in their own prime-time network special, but that isn't the only place they've been "spotted" lately. In fact, it seems that everywhere you turn these days there's a "Chick sighting."
On a recent episode of "Just Shoot Me," David Spade's character mistook an old friend (played by Jenny McCarthy) for one of the Dixie Chicks.
A similar storyline was written into NBC'S new comedy DAG. When the First Lady (Delta Burke) and her TV daughter were lunching incognito in our nation's capitol, they were mistaken for Dixie Chicks by folks who were thrown off by their disguises -- blonde wigs!
The Chicks are also showing up on game shows. Not only have the girls appeared as contestants on VH-1 s "Rock & Roll Jeopardy," but they've also been the subjects of questions on the popular quiz show.
A potential millionaire benefited from a Chicks' appearance on ABC's "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire." Last night a contestant achieved the $8,000 level for knowing that Trisha Yearwood is not a singer with the Dixie Chicks.
