We’re really, really, really tired of having taglines about music legends who have died.
Rhiannon Giddens goes Broadway, Kris Kristofferson gets boxed, and Beyoncé survives being Dixie Chicked, all in this week’s Sunday Selections!
It’s going down this week, and Keith Urban is the one yelling, “Timber,” with Pitbull.
Released in 1998, Wide Open Spaces established the Dixie Chicks as superstars right out of the gate. It produced five top ten hits, including three #1 singles, and sold more than twelve million copies in the United States alone. It remains their biggest selling album to date. But is it among their best?
Merle Haggard passed away on April 6th, and it has taken just about 20 days for people to try to politicize his death.

Another week, another music legend gone.
After what seems like months of ever-louder hype, Sturgill Simpson’s latest album finally arrived.
The death of Merle Haggard, a legend among legends, casts a pall over this week.
Merle Haggard passing away isn’t only a huge loss because of his legacy. It’s a huge loss because he was still a vital artist making new, good music that added to that legacy.
