The Dixie Chicks — consisting of Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire — dropped their first single in 13 years with the release of “Gaslighter” on March 4, and now it’s debuted at No. 36 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. This marks the highest debut on the chart for the Dixie Chicks since their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” in September 2002, which debuted at No. 32. 

According to Billboard, “Gaslighter” is the first song by the Dixie Chicks to hit the Top 30 since 2003. “Gaslighter” serves as the title track to the Dixie Chicks’ upcoming eighth studio album, which is slated to drop on May 1.

The trio also released a new video for “Gaslighter” which you can view at the link here.
