The Dixie Chicks have never been a band to shy away from politics. And throughout this year's election season, the Texas-bred musicians have made it a point to drive discussion.
Fans can expect the conversation to continue during the Dixie Chicks' concert at Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas Friday night. While that may not please everyone in attendance, Star-Telegram's Preston Jones asks an important question: Does that even matter?
"There is an argument to be made about the role of entertainers and commenting about anything contentious in a society, but the notion that the Dixie Chicks, or any band, should simply turn off their humanity and shift into jukebox mode is a rather naive point of view," Jones says.
Ahead of the band's highly anticipated show, the first in Dallas in a decade, let's take a look at some of its most recent politically charged moments.
Trump the devil
The Dixie Chicks grabbed headlines during their DCX MMXVI tour kick off when they flashed an image of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump with devil horns and facial hair.
Natalie Maines "ashamed" once again
Ted Cruz isn't immune from Dixie Chicks criticism. In January, singer Maines slammed the then-presidential hopeful after he said, "We will carpet bomb them into oblivion."
About Melania Trump ...
It will surprise few that Maines didn't hold back commentary going into and following the Republican National Convention. And just because Melania Trump is a woman didn't exclude her from criticism.
About Trump's hair ...
It's part of the campaign too, you know.
