Why did the dixie chicks change their name? What does dixie mean?

Why did the band called dixie chicks change their name in fact? What does the term they wanted to loose - dixie - mean? Was it really a must to shorten the dixie chicks only to the chicks? The choice doesn't seem a thoughtful decision to me rather seems they were in a hurry because of the newest global trend called BLM. It's ok to stand for anti-rasism, world peace, freedom of speach and all this but I beg your pardon, to change a world known band's name this poorly? What do you think? Whas the BLM movement the cause of the sudden change?
