Country Act ‘The Chicks’ Announced for the 2023 Iowa State Fair
We have some more big concert news for this summer's Iowa State Fair! Just this morning (February 14th), it was announced that The Chicks are headed back to Iowa in 2023!
The Chicks, formerly known as the Dixie Chicks, got their start as the band we know today back in 1995. Natalie Maines and sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer released their debut album Wide Open Spaces back in 1998, which gained them their first three number one hits. After that, the group sky rocketed to fame with 1999's Fly, 2002's Home, and 2006's Taking the Long Way. During that period, The Chicks won 13 Grammys, 10 CMA awards, 8 ACM awards, and countless other accolades.
The Chicks made their return to the spotlight after almost 14 years in 2020 with the release of their album Gaslighter. The group embarked on a headlining tour last year, and this spring they will be doing their very first Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino!
Other country acts announced for the 2023 Iowa State Fair include Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line and Eric Church. There are still many more announcements to come!
