The Dixie Chicks announced their first album in 14 years along with the new track “Gaslighter”, which was clearly inspired by Maines’ nasty divorce from Pasdar.
In the song, Maines sings about a person gaslighting her in a relationship. The lyrics include the line, “Gaslight, big timer. Repeating all of the mistakes of your father.”
The song turned personal when Maines sang “We moved to California and followed your dreams. I believed the promises you made to me. Swore that night ‘till death do us part. But you lie-lie-lie-lie-lied Hollywood welcomed you with open doors. No matter what they gave you, you still wanted more."
