The Chicks Replace Lady A at the Craven Country Jamboree

Craven, SK – Today festival organizers announced the new Saturday headline act for the 2013 Craven Country Jamboree – the Dixie Chicks.

“We knew we had to find something extra special to replace Lady Antebellum when the band canceled their summer dates due to Hilary Scott’s pregnancy,” said Kim Blevins, director of marketing. “We are extremely excited that we can offer a taste of country music royalty to the Craven Country Jamboree. And it won’t be a regular show – not only will our fans see Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, the three original members, this is a greatest hits package. The Craven date will be one of the only opportunities fans of the band will have to see them live. This is an incredibly special moment for Chicks fans and the Craven Country Jamboree.”
Dixie-Chicks
The Dixie Chicks are the highest selling female group of any genre. They hold the distinction of being the only country music group in history and the only female group of any genre to earn back to back Diamond awards for selling over 10 million albums. As a greatest hits show, their performance will be one big sing-a-long as with well-loved anthems like “Not Ready to Make Nice,” “Wide Open Spaces,” “Cowboy Take Me Away,” “Landslide,” “Ready to Run,” “Good-bye Earl,” and “Sin Wagon” to name but a few.

The Dixie Chicks join country superstar headliners Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, Scotty McCreery, Phil Vassar, Brantley Gilbert, Doc Walker, Sawyer Brown, Chad Brownlee, Gloriana, High Valley, Small Town Pistols, Jason Blaine, and country legends Randy Travis and Bill Anderson. Also returning is the funniest duo in comedy – Williams and Ree.

“This is the biggest, deepest lineup of any festival in Canada,” said Blevins. “We always strive to bring something for everyone from the biggest names in country music, to the best Canadian acts, to amazing classic country, all at the lowest price.”
