Singer Natalie Maines won a full scholarship to the Berklee College of Music.
Became a source of controversy when, while performing in Europe during the run-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Maines said to the audience, "Just so you know, we're on the good side with y'all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas." The group drew sharp criticisms from conservative media outlets, but country music legend Merle Haggard spoke out in encouragement of Maines' statement, saying, "I don't even know the Dixie Chicks, but I find it an insult for all the men and women who fought and died in past wars when almost the majority of America jumped down their throats for voicing an opinion. It was like a verbal witch-hunt and lynching."
Maguire and Robison sometimes perform separately under the name Court Yard Hounds.
