Trivia / Dixie Chicks

  • Chart Displacement: "Goodbye Earl" only got to #13 on the country music charts, and is only their fourth-highest ranking hit on the Hot 100. Relatedly, neither "Landslide" nor "Long Time Gone" got to #1 on the country charts, despite being among their biggest hits overall.
  • Creator Backlash: According to Natalie Maines on Twitter, she dislikes the band's first #1 hit, "There's Your Trouble".
  • The Pete Best: Robin Lynn Macy and Laura Lynch, both of whom split lead vocals in the original lineup. Macy left in 1993 over Creative Differences, and Lynch quit on good terms because she wanted to raise a family instead. Natalie Maines then replaced her, and with her on lead, they went on to mainstream success.
  • Real-Life Relative: Adrian Pasdar, who played one of the police officers in the "Goodbye Earl" music video, is Natalie Maines' husband.
  • Short-Lived Big Impact: Only five years of hit-making, but album shipments of 28 million and six #1 hits.
