Dixie Chicks reach out to the The Chicks about name change

From Lately, 10:20 pm on 26 June 2020

News broke today that US country act The Dixie Chicks have dropped the dixie and re-branded as The Chicks. They've done it because they say they've dropped the word because of its connections with the Confederacy and slavery. 

There was of course already a band called The Chicks! Suzanne Lynch from the New Zealand chicks talks to Karyn about how they were approached about the name change.
