Natalie Maines, one-third of country music’s most popular female power trio the Dixie Chicks, has been performing her sweet style of melodic country music for decades, and now the talented vocalist has delved into the wide world of wedding singing (at least temporarily,) taking the stage earlier this month at radio shock jock Howard Stern’s wedding. Stern’s wedding to model Beth Ostrosky was no less than the star-studded affair any of his fans would expect it to be, and the event drew in celebrities of all types and stature at New York City’s Le Cirque Restaurant, where both the wedding and reception were held.

During the wedding service, Maines crooned a specially-written song for Stern and Ostrosky as the happy couple walked down the aisle to be married by actor Mark Consuelos (yes, that’s Kelly Ripa’s husband.) Other celebrities in attendance at the Ostrosky/Stern wedding affair included Donald Trump, Joan Rivers, Billy Joel, John Stamos, Jillian Barberie, Pat Monahan, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman. Being such a talented crowd of standout musicians, impromptu performances popped up throughout the night, cameos made by the Piano Man himself as well as former Train frontman Monahan. Maines also took the stage once more during the night, performing a duet of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” with the seemingly-tone deaf Barberie.

While she’s used to sharing the stage with other powerful females, Maines normally performs alongside Emily Robinson and Martie Maguire, who together make up the girl power group the Dixie Chicks. Known for belting out songs like “Some Days You Gotta Dance,” “Wide Open Spaces” and “Goodbye Earl,” the Dixie Chicks rose from the Lonestar State in the 1990s to take over the contemporary country music realm with some of that good old-fashioned fiddle and guitar (and banjo) sound. Sisters Martie and Emily (whose last names were both Erwin preceding their marriages) jumpstarted the Dixie Chicks in 1989, forming their moniker from the Little Feat song “Dixie Chicken.” Soon after a change in the band’s lineup in 1995, vocalist Natalie Maines (and daughter of steel guitarist Lloyd Maines) jumped on board, bringing the Dixie Chicks into the spotlight in 1998 with the group’s major-label debut album Wide Open Spaces. Spawning the hit singles “I Can Love You Better” and “There’s Your Trouble,” the Dixie Chicks started a country girl group legacy that has showcased powerful vocals, instrumental ingenuity and lyrical magic.

Since 1998, the Dixie Chicks have been at the center of incredible amounts of attention. The progressive bluegrass group infused a pop-sounding country style into their catchy music, resulting in various awards ranging from Grammys to the Country Music Association and several in between. A playfully revengeful song titled “Goodbye Earl” took the Dixie Chicks straight to the top of the Billboard charts to stay, and ever since then the Dixie Chicks have been a mainstay in the country realm, releasing their latest album Taking the Long Way in 2006 while continuing to perfect their live act by impressing throngs of fans with Dixie Chicks tickets to one of their several and exhilarating live shows across the nation. If you’re looking for tickets to one of the Chicks’ live shows, try getting them from StubHub.
