Over the last fifteen years, the Dixie Chicks have become one of country music's most successful acts. However, the relationship between the band and the country music industry became strained following anti-war comments by lead singer Natalie Maines in March of 2003. This project analyzes this relationship from a feminist political economic perspective to examine how an apparent conservative ideology within the country music industry has impacted the career of the Dixie Chicks. By analyzing the various albums the Dixie Chicks have released since 1997 and the subsequent ways the band and their albums were marketed by their record company, questions raised about how women within country music are portrayed and treated by country music are investigated, along with how the Dixie Chicks may have subverted the treatment.Over the last fifteen years, the Dixie Chicks have become one of country musica#39;s most successful acts.
