Dixie Chicks Reunite for Texas Wildfire Victims

The Dixie Chicks are set to reunite next month to help raise funding for those affected by the wildfires that ripped through the state of Texas. The trio’s performance marks the first time the three have taken the stage together at the same time for their own headlining show since they announced their hiatus in 2008. The Chicks did, however, play a string of shows last summer with the Eagles.

Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett and Asleep at the Wheel are the other country acts who have signed on to perform at the Fire Relief: The Concert for Central Texas event, set to be held on October 17 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. Other special guests will include Eric Johnson, Steve Miller, Joe Satriani, Shawn Colvin, the Texas Tornados and the Court Yard Hounds (Martie Erwin Maguire and Emily Erwin Robison’s duo). Emcees for the evening will include Kyle Chandler of NBC’s ‘Friday Night Lights’ and Turk Pipkin.

Tickets to the all-star concert benefit are on sale now through the Austin Community Foundation. Tickets are priced at $25, $35 and $100. VIP tickets are also available for $250, which includes premium seating and access to the VIP Lounge in the Lone Star Room. There will also be a silent auction with specialty items autographed by the artists. In addition, special T-shirts designed for the event will be for sale.

Proceeds from the event will help raise money for victims of the late-summer central Texas wildfires. Losses are estimated to reach $250 million, and the fires outside Bastrop destroyed more homes than any wildfire in Texas history.
