The Dixie Chicks played a round of “Never Have I Ever” while backstage during a recent visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The hilarious two-minute clip features Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer confessing who has been to a nude beach, sent naughty text messages, lied to their kids and so much more as they take shots off the table in front of them.

The Dixie Chicks appeared on the show to perform their comeback single, “Gaslighter,” last month. During their appearance, the trio also reflected on the now-infamous comments made by Maines during Dixie Chicks’ concert in London in 2003. They shared their thoughts on being blacklisted and pondered if the backlash would have been the same if they made those comments in today’s society.

“I think we were one of the first people to feel that ‘cancel culture’ and I think, you know, what we said — or, what I said — back then would not even be a thing today because it was really mild compared to what people say today,” Maines said.

“Gaslighter” is the lead single from the Dixie Chicks’ long-awaited new album, which is scheduled to drop on May 1.
