The 'Dixie Chicks' have officially changed the name of their band to 'The Chicks' after mounting pressure to drop the word 'Dixie' due to its connection to racism in the old south.
The iconic country group including Natalie Maines, Emily Strayer, and Martie Maguire -- are now simply calling themselves 'The Chicks.'
The announcement coincided with the band's website also being changed to 'TheChicks.com.' On the website, the band offered this as their statement to the change, "We want to meet this moment."
