The Dixie Chicks will make an increasingly rare live appearance next summer, headlining Canada's Craven Country Jamboree. The country trio will replace Lady Antebellum, who have canceled upcoming tour dates around singer Hillary Scott's pregnancy. The Dixie Chicks last hit the road in 2010 for a tour with the Eagles, and they played a show for wildfire relief in Texas in October 2011.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
