Dixie Chicks Cover Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’

The Dixie Chicks‘ lead singer Natalie Maines channeled her inner pop star at one of the band’s recent live shows.

Maines led her fellow band members in a rendition of Miley Cyrus‘ ‘Wrecking Ball.’ The trio had fans singing along with their version of the tune, which sounded great with the band’s signature three-part harmonies.

The Chicks have been performing around the globe recently, including a tour through Canada last fall. But their tour schedule may not mean that the band is working on new material.

Band members Martie Maguire and Emily Robison have been focused on their new band Court Yard Hounds in recent years, while Maines has been working on a solo career.

‘Taking the Long Way’ was the last album released by the Chicks, almost eight years ago. The release and accompanying tour were successful, but didn’t match up to the band’s success on earlier albums.

“I’ve always hoped that we would become a recording entity again, but I don’t know,” Maguire said last summer. “I really learned to kind of let go, and I’m so happy where everything is right now. I’m so glad Natalie branched out and felt like she wanted to sing again and make a record; I think it’s actually made her more willing to play Dixie Chicks shows.”
