Martie Maguire Net Worth
Musician Martie Maguire, most famous as a member of the country music group The Dixie Chicks, has a net worth of $45 million. In addition to her net worth, she has the pride and contentment that accompanies making a living in the artistic field of your choosing. Maguire's career in music began at a very young age, when she began performing with her sister Emily, even going on tour by 1983 when Martie was only 14 years old. During this period, Martie and her sister would perform mostly as street performers, engaging in the show business tradition known as "busking." Six years later, in 1989, Martie eventually joined up with The Dixie Chicks, playing a mix of country standards and bluegrass which was Martie's "home turf." With the group's second album, The Little Ol' Cowgirl, The Dixie Chicks strayed away from their traditional bluegrass sound for a more polished and popular style. Maguire was given the chance to comment on this transition thusly: "I hope our fans won't be disappointed; it's got drums on every track; it's no longer bluegrass, but we have to make a living and you can't do that playing bluegrass" The group enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame followed by a stint of extreme controversy.
