Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines Rips Country Music, Fans
The National Ledger ^ | 1-30-06 | CK Rairden

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.

No surprise. She bit the hand that was feeding her. Good lesson that she learned.

They could always bring back the singer they ditched for Natalie, just before the Chicks hit the big time.

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?

Here's a link that describes the history of the term "redneck." Hubby will be more than proud to be called a redneck now.

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.

Ya'll do remember Natalie was married to a Mid-Easterner. What ever happened with him?

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.

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.

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.

Man created musical instruments. God created the human voice and the best of the human voice is distinctive and can not be exactly duplicated by any instrument.

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.

Some of the Dixie Chicks stuff is outstanding. Their recent stuff is pure garbage.

I don't buy their stuff and I would never support them.
