The DC's would have lost my support because of their recent remarks, except they already had lost it long ago when they sang their "hit", "Earl's Gotta Die".

You are one of the few who has posted this. I lost interest in the Dixie Chicks as personalities when they released this song. Can you imagine someone releasing a light-hearted song like that about a man killing his wife? They would still be screaming about it today! However, very few ever commented on "Earl."

I always wondered about that myself.... never got how Garth Brooks had an entire verse of "Thunder Rolls" censored from the air (and the CD as well), about a woman killing a cheating husband, and the DCs were allowed to push "Goodbye, Earl", where a wife's friend helps the wife kill the husband. Garth still sings the verse live:

She runs down the hallway, and through the bedroom door
Reaches for the pistol, hidden in the dresser drawer
Tells the woman in the mirror he won't do this again
Cause this is the last time she'll wonder where he's been....

The last thunder sound effect is replaced with the sound of a gunshot....
