The Chicks Switch Representation to John Silva’s Silva Artist Management

Less than a month before the Chicks’ first studio album  in 14 years arrives, the trio has changed artist management.

The Chicks, who dropped Dixie from their name earlier today (June 25), have inked with John Silva’s Silva Artist Management (SAM), Billboard has confirmed. Among the other artists repped by SAM are Foo Fighters, St. Vincent and Nine Inch Nails.

The group has been managed by Simon Renshaw for more than 20 years until he retired two years ago. Since then, the Chicks had been repped by Monotone/LBI Entertainment, who also manage Vampire Weekend, Jack White and Margo Price, Jamie Foxx, LCD Soundsystem and Amber Mark, among others.

In March, Natalie Maines and sisters Emily Strayer and Martie Maguire released “Gaslighter,” the first single and title track from their new album. Shortly thereafter, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the album’s release was pushed from May to July 17. The trio has subsequently released “Julianna Calm Down” and today posted “March March” on their Instagram, which had been rebranded The Chicks. The Chicks gave no explanation for the name change other than saying “We want to meet this moment” on their website. The video for the song, which was originally inspired by the March for Our Lives movement, includes footage from Pride marches and recent Black Lives Matter marches following George Floyd’s death by police.

The Chicks follow Lady Antebellum (now Lady A) in changing from their original name, which held connotations of a pre-Civil War South that embraced slavery.

The Chicks declined to comment on the change, as did Silva and Monotone’s Ian Montone.

Variety originally reported the news.
