Limited-engagement channel runs on satellite & SXM App
SiriusXM has announced the launch of The Chicks Channel, a limited-run channel celebrating the music of beloved musical icons The Chicks. The Chicks Channel will be available on channel 104 through Tuesday, August 9th at 3 am ET, while the SXM App will broadcast The Chicks Channel through August 31st.
“Music has always been a medium that brings people together, a way to connect and find commonality,” the trio shares. “As we continue to connect with our fans across the country on tour, we are so happy to also bring our music across the airwaves on our own SiriusXM channel.”
The Chicks Channel will explore The Chicks’ entire catalog, including some of their biggest hits like “Wide Open Spaces” and “Cowboy Take Me Away,” as well as deep cuts and live performances. The channel will also highlight their latest album Gaslighter, which charted No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Charts.
The exclusive channel will feature special commentary and stories from the band, intermixed with hand-picked music they love by artists, including Brandi Carlile, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Taylor Swift, Patty Griffin, James Taylor, David Gray, The Beatles and more.
The Chicks have also announced five new dates for their critically acclaimed The Chicks Tour, which kicked off to rave reviews earlier this summer. The band is set to perform on October 4th at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rogers, AR, with additional stops confirmed in Oklahoma City on October 5th at The Zoo Amphitheatre, October 8th at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Woodlands, TX, followed by back-to-back performances at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Irving, TX on October 10th and October 11th. Public on-sale is set to begin Friday, August 5th at 10 am local time via Ticketmaster.
The Chicks, formerly known as The Dixie Chicks, began in 1989 in Dallas, Texas, and disrupted the country music scene, having since boasted more GRAMMY wins than any other female group. After nearly 14 years, the group made their long-awaited return in March of 2020 with the release of their hit single “Gaslighter,” the title track of their latest album which was released to rave reviews in July 2020.
