The Dixie Chicks 'Make Nice' for VH1 Storytellers

'VH1 Storytellers: Dixie Chicks' Premiering Saturday, October 28 at 9PM VSPOT, VH1's Broadband Channel Gives Fans an Early Look at a Performance From the Show Beginning Today at http://dixiechicks.vh1.com

NEW YORK, Oct. 19 -- The Dixie Chicks treated fans to an intimate performance during a taping of VH1 Storytellers at the Los Angeles Theater in Los Angeles on September 20. The concert, which benefited the VH1 Save the Music Foundation, will premiere on VH1, Saturday, October 28 at 9PM. While their songs tell a story, The Dixie Chicks reveal the inspirations behind some of their classic hits as well as a few of their future classics, such as "Not Ready To Make Nice" which turned their whole world around...and they kind of like it. Viewers will also get to know the "Chicks" a little better as they show their lighter side and reveal a bit about their personal lives.

The episode treats fans to a unique experience as The Dixie Chicks perform new songs from their latest album Taking The Long Way in addition to previous hits. In quintessential "Storytellers" form, the Chicks (Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire) answer questions from fans and in a new interview give an honest and revealing look at the stories behind the songs.

Viewers will have the opportunity to hear the inspiration behind such hits as "Wide Open Spaces" and "Cowboy Take Me Away" and from their new album Taking The Long Way, "The Long Way Around," "Lubbock Or Leave It," "Silent House," and their current hit and answer to all the political upheaval they stirred up, "Not Ready To Make Nice."

VSPOT (http://dixiechicks.vh1.com) began airing The Dixie Chicks performance of "Not Ready To Make Nice" beginning yesterday, October 18 -- ten days before "Storytellers: Dixie Chicks" airs on VH1. VSPOT will also host an exclusive performance of "Truth #2" and unseen interview footage with the Dixie Chicks, which will not be seen during the on-air broadcast.
