The Dixie Chicks have been on a hiatus since 2007, reportedly so that the trio could spend more time with their respective families. They have made several guest appearances, tours, and performances since the break, most recently at the Concert For Wildfire Relief in Austin, Texas in 2011. During the show, Natalie Maines said that there was “zero hesitation” when the group was asked to do the show.
Congratulations to Emily Robison on her new daughter!
