Emily Robison, member of the popular and controversial country music group The Dixie Chicks, has a net worth of $48 million. In addition to her sizable net worth, she has an army of devoted fans thanks to her membership in The Dixie Chicks. Her career in music began at a young age, just like her sister Martie who also went on to join The Dixie Chicks. Their career started on the bluegrass festival circuit, where the sisters would busk and perform for small venues. From there, Emily eventually joined up with The Dixie Chicks, which started out as having a rougher, more traditional bluegrass sound before transitioning to a more popular and polished crowd pleasing style in their second album, entitled The Little Ol' Cowgirl. The popularity of The Dixie Chicks continued to rise, eventually becoming one of the most popular groups in country music, and achieving a kind of pop crossover success that would have been unthinkable if the group had stuck to its bluegrass roots. Since then, The Dixie Chicks have known the highs of success as well as the lows of controversy after being outspoken opponents of President George W. Bush in a country music climate that is largely conservative.
