PopMatters is 10 years old this year and we’re celebrating all year by remembering the culture of the year we were born. Look for a special music of 1999 special section in just a few weeks. In the meantime, we’ll start kicking things off here in Mixed Media.
The Dixie Chicks released their sophomore album (Fly) in the current incarnation with Natalie Maines in 1999 and “Goodbye Earl” was clear highlight, giving voice to female rage and empowerment. The video is pretty great too with Jane Krakowski, Lauren Holly and Dennis Franz.
