Keith Urban and the Dixie Chicks may already be headliners in their own right, but they are nonetheless excited to be opening acts on select dates for the Eagles' stadium tour this summer, which kicks off June 8 in Canada. Keith shares with AOL's The Boot, "To grow up listening to all the Eagles records... to be a huge Don Henley fan, Joe Walsh fan, Glenn [Frey] and all the boys... it's phenomenal. I'm so thrilled to play on these shows, and I wish we could do more of them!" Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks explains, "We really are just doing it for fun. The opportunity arose, and all three of us were really into it. The thought of being able to open up shows for the Eagles in stadiums, it's something we haven't been able to do yet in our own career - have venues that large."
The Eagles' tour actually will be the first time in four years that the Chicks will perform live together. Sisters Robison and Martie Maguire also will release their debut album as a duo next month, calling themselves the Court Yard Hounds.
