Playlist: The Very Best of Dixie Chicks


On one hand, one would expect that an album of personally selected tracks from the Dixie Chicks would include edgier songs like “Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)” or the desperate “Voice in My Head,” instead of mostly well-known radio singles such as “Wide Open Spaces” and “Long Time Gone,” culled from the Chicks’ past albums. Perhaps that is merely a testament to the fact that this landmark country trio never specifically made music for radio consumption anyway—the Chicks performed solidly built original music, and radio smartly caught on. Natalie Maines’ soulful voice is nicely highlighted by Emily Robison and Martie McGuire’s harmonies on the acoustic “Let Him Fly” and “Landslide.” There are plenty of cuts from 2006’s Taking the Long Way, such as “Easy Silence” and “Not Ready to Make Nice,” which imparts the sense that their views regarding the Iraq war remain intact. Fortunately, so is their consummate musicianship and knack for creating lyrically complicated yet ear-pleasing tunes.
