Dixie Chicks Change Their Name

The Dixie Chicks have changed their name to The Chicks.

The American country group appeared to make the change following criticism of the use of the word Dixie, which often refers to the southern states of the US that broke away around 1860 to form the new Confederate States of America.

The band's social media accounts and website have changed to reflect the new branding.

A statement on their website read: "We want to meet this moment."

The Chicks also released a video for their new song, March March, which features videos and images from the recent Black Lives Matter rallies.

The name switch follows a similar move by the band formerly known as Lady Antebellum, who changed their name to Lady A after acknowledging the word's association to slavery.
