The winds of change continue to blow through the music and entertainment industry in the wake of George Floyd's death last month.

With the Black Lives Matter movement making a difference in many facets of life, including political, it has also forced some bands and artists to look at themselves and how they could change.

Earlier this month, country band Lady Antebellum announced that they were changing their name to 'Lady A', although that decision brought problems of its own.

Now, Dixie Chicks have also announced that they will be changing their name because of similar reasons.

The trio, who release a new album 'Gaslighter' next month, are dropping the 'Dixie' and will now be known as 'The Chicks'.

'Dixie', if you didn't know, is a nickname for the Confederate-era American South, where slavery was particularly prevalent.

The band released a new protest song, 'March March', in conjunction with the name change, simply saying 'We want to meet this moment' in a brief statement on their website. They also acknowledged New Zealand band The Chicks, "for their gracious gesture in allowing us to share their name.”
