Dixie Chicks
Fri 22 April, 20:00; Forum Horsens, Langmarksvej 53, Horsens, 580- 680kr
With 13 Grammy Awards, the Dixie Chicks look certain to put on a show when they come to Forum Horsens in April.

Originally from Texas, they have honed the ability to blow an audience away since their formation in 1989, and the chance to see arguably one of the founders of the country-pop genre should not be missed.

Taking the Long Way, the band’s seventh studio album released in 2006, represents the height of the group’s crossover appeal between country and pop music.

The album was a huge hit, going to number one on several Billboard charts.
The tour will continue in Malmö with a concert on April 27. (AJ)
