one of the exciting things i get to do this month, besides go back to school (kidding!), is see the dixie chicks perform in dallas. it’s this friday, in fact! i never got to see them in person when they were still performing in the states. this is their first tour in america in over ten years. i’ve been a fan since middle and high school. their talent and sass has always drawn me in. i’m in the minority, but i support their right to speak their minds. from the reviews i’ve read of this current tour, they are their outspoken selves, but they do it in a funny and tasteful way. i’m excited to hear my old favorites and some of their new covers. i’m also wondering if they’ll try out some new music. fingers crossed – please let them release a new album!
so to honor the concert of a lifetime for me, here’s one of my all time faves – “wide open spaces”. i listened to this song on repeat (and cried, to be honest) when i moved away from home and went to college. it still makes me emotional when i hear it. every girl has felt that way, and this song expresses all those feelings we experienced.
