DEVON O'DAY: The Dixie Chicks went for broke and won. Their new album 'Home' debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 album
chart -- selling an amazing 780,000 copies in the first week out -- the highest sales of any female group in the Soundscan
era of computerized sles tracking. The new single is a bare bones read of "Landslide", first recorded by Stevie Nicks for
Fleetwood Mac's 1977 'Rumours' album. Natalie Maines explains the connection.
NATALIE: We sang it with Stevie on the Vh1 Divas show and I sang on her album so we told her we were doing the song before
we even recorded it and then she had heard it when I did Leno with Sheryl and Stevie and she said she liked it. You know,
it's one of those things -- what's she gonna say. She's not gonna say she doesn't like it. So I don't know truly what she
thinks about it.
DEVON O'DAY: So why did the Chicks cut a 1970's era pop song. Natalie says it's an age thing.
NATALIE: We love the song and definitely relate to it at this age. She said she wrote it when she was 27 which is how
old I am. To me, it's just about accepting age and change. Someone asked me the other day what I thought the song was
about and that's what it's about for me. This feeling like I'm getting older and accepting that and sort of embracing it.
EMILY: I'm excited about bringing it to kind of a new generation of people who may not be as familiar with her as they
are with someone like else and if we're a bridge back for younger people to discover her music, I think that's kinda cool
