The original Dixie Chicks were sisters Martie Erwin and Emily Erwin, plus Laura Lynch and Robin Lynn Macy. They formed in 1989 in Dallas, Texas and made their name as a bluegrass band until 1995, when Lynch left and Macy was replaced by Natalie Maines. With Maines on board, their music and style took a more commercial turn – veering away from the traditional bluegrass sensibilities and towards something rockier. They also veered away from country-and-western's conservative politics, prompting extreme reactions from fans including boycotts of their work and shows, and in some cases even death threats. Though this took its toll on record sales for a while, the band bounced back, going on to win 13 Grammy Awards, including five in 2007 for Taking the Long Way – which received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year – and "Not Ready to Make Nice", a single from that album.
