#15. ‘Wide Open Spaces’ by The Chicks


Released in 1998, “Wide Open Spaces” was one of the first projects the band worked on after recruiting frontwoman Natalie Maines into The Chicks, the band formerly known as The Dixie Chicks. It quickly became cemented as The Chicks’ breakthrough record, and scored two Grammys the year it came out, including Best Country Album. The record produced the hit singles “I Can Love You Better,” “There’s Your Trouble,” and the title track. “I Can Love You Better” gave way to a music video set in an airport lobby and tattoo shop in Nashville. The band performed a children’s version of the song on “Sesame Street,” called “No Letter Better than B.”
