The Dixie Chicks might not be ready to make nice, but they're ready to make a change.

Following the mass shooting early Sunday morning at a queer nightclub in Orlando, the country group paid tribute to victims of the attack at the end of their Madison Square Garden show on Monday night in New York.

Before launching into a cover of Ben Harper's "Better Way" in front of a rainbow heart, the band's frontwoman, Natalie Maines, shared a message of love to all of those touched by the Orlando tragedy. 

"We cannot let the hatred and the anger win out," she said, according to Newsday. "We gotta put positivity out there in the universe.”

The band members' children joined their mothers onstage for the final number, making an already emotional moment even more memorable. 

The group previously recognized those affected by the shooting via social media, extending their "hearts and thoughts" to "friends and families who have lost their loved ones to violence in Orlando."
