In addition to 13 GRAMMYs, The Chicks have also been awarded six Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards, and numerous Country Music Association Awards among many other awards and accolades.

Gaslighter, The Chicks’ fifth studio album, was released on July 17, 2020.
In 2022, The Chicks went on tour in support of the album, bringing their live show to cities across the U.S. from June through August.
Country Music In Las Vegas
Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is also home to several other country artists’ Las Vegas residencies, including Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban.
Lambert kicked off Miranda Lambert’s Velvet Rodeo: The Las Vegas Residency on September 23, 2022.
The “If I Was A Cowboy” singer’s residency runs through December of this year.
The Texas native’s show is a 90-minute celebration of Lambert’s artistry with a 22-song, career-spanning set list that featured tunes from her debut album, Kerosene, to her current project, Palomino.
The country hitmaker previously told Billboard that she took inspiration from fellow country artists Brooks & Dunn, Shania Twain and George Strait when putting together the set list for her residency.
“What I learned from those shows alone was that you’re in Vegas because you built a catalog, so play the songs that people know and love from you. That’s really what I’m sticking with,” Lambert said. ”Sometimes on the road or with new record cycles, we get all wrapped up in our new songs, but there’s a certain amount of trust the fans put in this catalog.”

Keith Urban will launch his brand-new Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theater in the Spring following a successful three-year run of shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Urban’s residency will kick off on March 3 and run through July 1.
Urban recently opened up about his forthcoming residency with Billboard, sharing a few details of what fans can expect from his production during the upcoming stint at Zappos Theater.
“I’m bringing in this guy called Roy Bennett [who] has put together shows for me in the past, I can’t recall which tour we did, it might have been around the Light the Fuse tour or Ripcord,” Urban said. ”Roy designed that whole production for me and I loved working with him so I brought him in to help me conceptualize what we’re going to do at Zappos. We’re gonna take advantage of the space.”
He also shared his reason for changing venues with the publication.
“It’s all the Caesars corporation, so it’s still in the family. That room is a little bit bigger than Colosseum (4,600 versus Colosseum’s 4,100 seats),” Urban explained. ”I haven’t played in there yet, but I’ve been in there and it felt a little more geared towards the kind of energy that I was trying to create at the Colosseum. It was just a collective agreement that the move would be really good so we just jumped at it.”
