The Dixie Cups are an American pop music girl group of the 1960s. They are best known for their 1964 million selling hit " Chapel of Love".

The girls first sang together in grade school. Originally they were called Little Miss and the Muffets, but were named The Dixie Cups just prior to their first release.

The Dixie Cups  consisted of a trio which were  Barbara Ann and sister Rosa Lee Hawkins plus  their cousin Joan Marie Johnson.

By 1963 the trio had decided to pursue a career in music and began singing locally as the Meltones. Within a year Joe Jones, a successful singer in his own right with the Top Five 1960 Single "You Talk To Much,"  became their manager . After working with them for five months. Jones took them to New York, where record producers/songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller signed them to their new Red Bird Record
