Gutsy Women
Dixie Chicks And Sheryl Crow Prove They're Gutsy Women

(12/3/99, 12 p.m. ET) - The Dixie Chicks and rocker Sheryl Crow became fast friends when both acts performed on the Lilith Fair this summer. While the Chicks have always had a penchant for practical jokes, it wasn't until befriending Crow that they all started playing "truth or dare" together while out on the road and, according to the Chicks trio, "truth" is not an option.
Dixie Chick Martie Seidel recounted a couple of the ladies' funniest dares to LAUNCH. "At one club we went to with Sheryl Crow, I was dared to just walk up behind the bar and start serving up drinks, and Sheryl Crow was dared to go to the bathroom and stick a long piece of toilet paper out the back of her pants and walk all the way across the dance floor like she didn't know it was hanging out of her pants. She was a trooper. She played right along."
The Chicks joined Crow as her guests at her free concert in New York's Central Park in September, and are included in Crow's live album, recorded at the event. The Chicks accompany Crow on her hit, "Strong Enough." The album, Sheryl Crow And Friends--Live In Central Park, is due in stores on Dec. 7. Other "friends" on the set include Eric Clapton, Sarah McLachlan, Stevie Nicks, Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, and Keith Richards.
