To celebrate their big 10th anniversary in style, CMC Rocks have tagged Us country music titans Dixie Chicks to headline. This will be the first Australian tour from the group in a decade.
Dixie Chicks have been touring hard throughout North America and Europe for a run of shows which have been touted as a total return to form for the 13-time Grammy Award winners. Considering they’ve sold more than 30 million records worldwide and have gone multi-platinum in Australia, country music fans surely won’t be fussed by the fact the festival had to changes dates to secure the group.
Promoter Rob Potts admits it was “a major coup” to lock in the country-western powerhouse, however to make it work, they literally moved the festival dates by two weeks from the usual time slot. Fairly indicative of just how much effort has gone into making this festival one for the ages.
CMC Rocks, the largest event of its kind this side of the equator, has done some great things for country music in this part of the world. Over the years they’ve claimed Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and even Tay-Tay. So fans should get ready for a glorious full lineup announcement coming Friday, 7th October.
