No. 46: Dixie Chicks, ‘Wide Open Spaces’ – Top 100 Country Songs

Wide Open Spaces
Monument Records

‘Wide Open Spaces’ was the title-track and third single from the Dixie Chicks‘ major label debut. The album changed country music as much as first projects from Garth Brooks, Shania Twain and more recently, Taylor Swift. This song was the Chicks’ second straight No. 1 hit, and it stayed on top of the charts for four weeks.

Song No. 46 on the Top 100 Country Songs list is a signature song for the trio because it defined who they were and how fans would think of them until years later, when they feuded with Toby Keith. It’s a story of optimism, strength and hope for women. Not surprisingly, the Dixie Chicks attracted a large female fanbase that continues to follow them to this day.
