Trivia: Dixie Chicks

  • Creator Backlash: According to Natalie Maines on Twitter, she dislikes the band's first #1 hit, "There's Your Trouble".
  • Hey, It's That Guy!/Retroactive Recognition: "Goodbye Earl" starred Jenny Shepard and Jenna Maroney as the girls and Sipocwicz as Earl. The cops are Nathan Petrelli and Tony Piccolo.
    • Behind the scenes, "Not Ready To Make Nice" was co-written by Dan Wilson of Semisonic, who recorded the quintessential late-90s alt. rock hit "Closing Time."
  • 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.
