Death Cause of Laura Lynch


Death Cause of Laura Lynch

"Laura Lynch, a founding member of the Dixie Chicks, has passed away at the age of 65. Lynch died in a car crash in West Texas on Friday evening."

Bass player Laura Lynch, the co-founder of the Dixie Chicks, now officially known as the Chicks, alongside Robin Lynn Macy and sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer (née Erwin), began their musical journey in 1989. Lynch and Macy took turns as lead vocalists until Macy's departure in 1993.

During their time together, the group produced three albums: "Thank Heavens for Dale Evans" (1990), "Little Ol’ Cowgirl" (1992), and "Shouldn’t a Told You That" (1993), where Lynch took on all lead vocals. Following Lynch's departure, Natalie Maines stepped in as her replacement.

In June 2020, the country music band opted to shorten its name to "the Chicks" amidst public discussions questioning the appropriateness of the term "Dixie," which had historical associations with the slavery era.

Members Maines, Strayer, and Maguire shared a collective statement mourning Lynch's passing: "We are shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Laura Lynch, a founding member of The Chicks. We cherish the special moments spent making music, sharing laughter, and traveling together. Laura was a radiant presence; her infectious energy and humor added a vibrant spark to the early days of our band. Beyond her musical talents, Laura had a keen eye for design, a deep love for all things Texas, and played a pivotal role in our early success. Her undeniable contributions helped elevate us from street corner performances to stages across Texas and the mid-West.
