The group performed at the 2015 Bridge School Benefit over the weekend, which is a yearly concert that helps raise money for the Mountain View, Calif. school that specializes in teaching children with severe speech and physical impairments.
The Chicks played a half-hour set that included their hits “Sin Wagon” and “Not Ready to Make Nice”. Following in the tradition of the event, which was first held in 1987, the Chicks inserted some creative covers into their performance.
Along with their popular cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “Landslide,” the group supplied a countryfied version of alt-pop singer Lana Del Rey’s 2010 single, “Video Games”. They kept their rendition close to the original, with Natalie Maines even borrowing Del Rey’s signature drawn-out style of singing.
The adventurous cover choice proves we should still expect the unexpected from the Chicks, who have steadily gained a new fan base since their controversial comments on then-President Bush led to banishment from mainstream country music in 2003.
The Dixie Chicks will hit the road for a string of European dates, which includes stops in Switzerland, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, the UK and Ireland. Although no American tour dates have been announced, let’s cross our fingers that we’ll see the Chicks once again step onstage in their home country sometime soon.
