Dixie Chicks (from left, Emily Robison, Natalie Maines and Martie Maguire) have won 13 Grammys and made waves with their outspoken songs, including the 2006 hit "Not Ready to Make Nice," written in response to backlash the band received after Maines said onstage during a 2003 concert that she was "ashamed" that then-president George W. Bush was from Texas. (Credit: AP/ Dima Gavrysh)
