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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
