If they show nothing but contempt for their consumers it seems "dumb as a liberal" foolish to expect high sales.

"I wonder what the two sisters really think."

Ive often wondered that too...were they getting to enjoy free speech too or were they sort of stuck with stupid?

I think this is just hilarious! Most of the liberal hippies I know really didn't like the chicks a few years ago, in fact they were pretty much derided as southern rednecks. Now that the country music crowd has shunned the chicks, they are gonna try to suck up to the other side. This is too funny.

I think I will go out and buy a few Toby Keith albums this week...

Don't worry about your career, Natalie. You can always be a pole dancer.

It'd have to be a telephone pole.

They stood by Natalie..and let's face it...they were going nowhere until Natalie came along. So what else could they do? I suspect they never thought it would get so out of control..literally, ruining their careers.

"First of all...none of them are great looking..."

Do You work for Pravda or the New York Times?
Which is it?

"there are hundreds of better looking girls in country music"

Where are they at?

Disagree...their last album was a huge country success

I agree. But my point is before that there was something about them that seemed a little off.

But after the "incident" it's like they never even existed

Well that sort of happens with institutionalized censorship doesn't it now? No offense but with a few companies owning all the stations (which I have no problem with) when corporate sends a directive to no longer play their music, of course you're not going to hear them anywhere.

Country music world was more than happy to get rid of them. They pissed alot of people off. I do believe the country music world is a big family and they were known to insult other performers, and that's a no no

That's my point, they were pissing off other performers before their statement in the UK

It is a shame, because that Natalie girl has a great voice...wasted.

I'm a Gretchen Wilson sort of guy. She's a lot easier on the eyes and her voice is just sexy. I liked the Dixie Chicks for what they were but I never considered them much more than a country Backstreet Boys

Him and Faith both had some pretty rotten things to say about GWB after hurricane Katrina. You know thats the hurricane GWB and Carl Rove conjured up to turn New Orleans Republican.

Im suprised they have been so supportive of her after how inconsiderate she was of THEIR careers.

It seems rare that 3 grown women would agree on anything.

They were more than that before they fired the founders and brought in Natalie. Can't argue with the decision on an economic level, because they clearly made more money with the new configuration. But, as you say, they became the country Backstreet Boys instead of the hot Texas blueswing band they were before. That was back when they were playing Republican fundraisers.

Well, I disagree with you about their talent...but now it's just wasted talent. Ironically, you say their success was based on their looks and I say the reason they'll never make it in pop is because they don't have the looks. They're too old and Maines is too fat.

To compare herself in any way with Buddy Holly indicates an inflated sense of importance and or talent; neither of which is justified in any way.

"First of all...none of them are great looking..."

I agree, Natalie is chubby and her look is common among any trailer park, the blonde has an abnormally long head imo, and the brunette..well she is the best looking one.
But none of them are knockouts.

Neither Am I extremely handsome, just saying.

"Yeah, and taking a slap at Buddy Holly on their new CD ain't helping any. Buddy's brothers are furious, and, so are his fans!"

WHAT ??? !!!!!
Are you kidding me???
Dissing Buddy Holly is like chewing gum in church!

I pray for their speedy collapse into bankruptcy. A-Hey Hey.

when corporate sends a directive to no longer play their music, of course you're not going to hear them anywhere.

I don't remember a directive being sent out, what I recall is thousands of listeners calling in and demanding that their songs not be played.
