Dixie Chicks Still ‘Not Ready to Make Nice’ in New Concert Film [Watch]
The Dixie Chicks have released a new concert film documenting their latest tour to the big screen with DCX MMXVI — In Concert, and they're giving fans a taste of the thrilling show with the video for "Not Ready to Make Nice."
Going for a dramatic stage setting, the Chicks opt for dark red lighting as the crowd instantly goes crazy when they hear the song's familiar opening notes, singing the words back to the trio on stage. Fans dance in the audience and take a stand with the Grammy-winning group as they proclaim, "I'm not ready to make nice / I'm not ready to back down / I'm still mad as hell, and I don't have time / To go 'round and 'round and 'round."
Originally released in 2006, "Not Ready to Make Nice" was the Chicks' response to the enormous career fallout they suffered after Nataline Maines' now-infamous comments slapping President George W. Bush in the run up to the Irag war.

The DCX MMXVI World Tour kept the group on the road for the majority of 2016 and 2017, marking the first time they'd headlined the U.S. and Australia since 2007. In addition to performing signature tracks like "Goodbye Earl," "Travelin' Soldier" and "Cowboy Take Me Away," they also treated the crowd to covers of Bob Dylan's "Mississippi" and Beyonce's "Daddy Lessons," the latter of which they also performed at the 2016 CMA Awards with Bey herself.
"Not Ready to Make Nice" was a huge success for the group, scoring them three Grammy Awards in 2007 for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal, along with landing in the No. 4 spot on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100.
DCX MMXVI — In Concert opened in select theaters across the U.S. on Aug. 7. The Dixie Chicks will release their DCX MMXVI Live CD and DVD package on Sept. 1.
