Skip to comments.Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines Rips Country Music, Fans
Posted on 01/30/2006 3:00:25 PM PST by Coastal
The Dixie Chicks were humming along as a darling country music trio until one night in March 2003 in London. Lead singer Natalie Maines slammed President George W. Bush at a concert and announced to the British crowd, "We're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas."
That didn't sit well with country music fans then, and now Maines says she's finished with the genre and is none too pleased with the fans, basically labeling them as redneck hicks.

Make that PROUD redneck hicks.
Who are the dixie chiks? That name sounds faintly familiar. Oh well.
This woman thinks she still has a music career?
No surprise. She bit the hand that was feeding her. Good lesson that she learned.
It's only fair. Last night after a heavy bowl of beans I ripped a Natalie Maines.
If Natalie gained 10 pounds every time she made a fool of herself...er...never mind.
They could always bring back the singer they ditched for Natalie, just before the Chicks hit the big time.
She really know how to hurl insults at country music fans. lol I think it's a compliment.
She clearly does not understand country music if she thinks calling those of us who listen to it "rednecks" is an insult.
In short, they didn't agree with her, so they must be morons. Can't possibly be that she is the one that's wrong, now can it?
So long Natalie, you won't be missed.
Don't you know the other two want to kill her?!
I would rather be a redneck hick then a red communist sympathizing stupid little ditsy chick.
The favorite daughter of Lubbock speaks again.
No Ditzy chicks music here.
I prefer Southern Rock instead.
Here's a link that describes the history of the term "redneck." Hubby will be more than proud to be called a redneck now.
You must be a redneck, too!
Just another militant lesbosexual
I guess I should put the link:
Good heavens I was going to post something profound about this topic but after reading Natalie's holier than thou ramblings in the full article all I can hear in my head is a screeching "ya ya ya ya ya ya ya...." Good riddance.
They're new album will be like the Eagles?!? Sorry, Chickies, but Eagles fans will NOT appreciate that and certainly won't support you. The country is finished with them.
I guess that is her version of liberal love and understanding. So much for the open-mindedness of the libs...
Have a nice career stupid!
Ya'll do remember Natalie was married to a Mid-Easterner. What ever happened with him?
There is nobody more intolerant that a far lefty!
Hopefully, their next concert tour does not sell out.
Unless they hold it in Berkeley, CA, or Greenwich Village, NY, it will not sell out.
Strike that. Put it on the campus of any major college or university, and you may get enough psuedo-intellectual lefties willing to waste their money.
No - I'm talking about the major stadiums that were (coincidentally) sold out last time around.
Gee, I always thought the term redneck referred to people who were outside a lot and their necks got sunburned.
Well, we can only hope they have pissed off enough people to make sure that will not happen again.
As I recall, the concert dates here in the U.S. were already sold out when Natalie made her attacks. However, it has been a long time since then - the American public has a short memory - rightly or wrongly. Also, no WMDs were found in the intervening time period and Bush's approval ratings have dipped. When did their latest CD come out, and if it already did, how are sales going?
I don't think it has come out yet, but I may be wrong. From what I have read, it is pretty much an attack on Country Music fans.
Well, it was time for another genre hop anyway, wasn't it?
Let's hope their next fan base learns that lesson quickly.
Dixie Chicks what?
the fat one is pissed that those who paid money to make her ass fatter than it was didn't like her bashing the President.
Maybe she's on a diet....
Do the other 2 know she's mouthing off again? I mean there's the one that never talks and then the other one (which would be the always pregnant one).....
From the picture in the referenced article, it does unfortunately look like Natalie's lost some weight - I just hope there are no country music fans left for them either way.
air brush :)
It can take off 5 - 10 - 50 pounds.....
I appreciate the human voice and will respect the quality of the pleasing and best.
I really don't give a damn about their politics. That is the part I don't listen to.
This didn't look "airbrushed" to me (I don't know how to post pictures here, so here's the direct link):
'Buy our records and make us rich, you redneck hicks.' What a tool. *eyeroll*
that's just her face though.
That wasn't ever her problem.
Her problem was around her waist....
I don't buy their stuff and I would never support them.
