They cancel a concert for lack of ticket sales, and say they are overwhelmed by their fans' support. Yeah..sure.

What we weren't prepared for, however, was the overly passionate audience response at all of the stops on the tour so far.

Yeah, in blue states.

I think this is the first form of a boycott that I have seen that has actually worked to a degree. I believe they can redeem themselves if Natalie writes a song on the next album entitled, "I am a stupid Hick Chick" or " I desrve to be called a Bitch" or " I should never have opened my big fat country mouth" as an apology to the country and to her fans.

I would love to be in the room when their accountant tells the three signers how many millions of dollars they lost. And I bet Bill Clinton will do all he can to try and console Natalie.

if they can't produce in a place named after the St. Pete Times, you know they're in trouble. This could very well be a sign of a cultural watershed. Who's sinking faster, the MSM or the leftist entertainment industry?

"Dixie Chicks' Shut Up and Sing" film??? How ironic! If only they took their own advice.

The Dixie Chicks camp is reporting that the tour was rerouted "to allow the group some promotion time in September around the debut of the documentary film 'Dixie Chicks' Shut Up and Sing.'"

Wow....a falsehood and plagiarism in the same quote!

Allowing some promotion? Attention Chickies: that's what a tour is supposed to be! Bad luck if nobody's interested in the promotion.

'Shut Up And Sing' is already taken. It's the title of Laura Ingraham's popular book. I hope Laura takes action on this one.

It's obvious that the Chickies think that the 'outlaw' image is the way forward and no doubt their documentary will feature some serious self-pity and paranoia.

No doubt the "passionate" fans are clowns in the kook-left element who are dutifully turning out at concerts to cheer the Dixie Sheehans on.

The Chicks misinterpret their "passionate" fan base at their own peril.

Might have helped if her mother had used one.

On Natalies overdeveloped backside, to eliminate the now overdeveloped selfindulged ego.

Well, your career seems to be "phasing out" rather quickly.

Too bad. They are a talented bunch..."Travelin' Soldier" is one of my favorite songs.

It's too bad that these idiots can't simply shut up and entertain.

I believe it wasn't the comments about Bush that alienated their fan base as much as some of their insulting comments about their fans in an interview some time later.

They truly are the Ditzy CHicks.

Sounds like a good idea and Maines could take her Iranian husband with her.

And, they are no longer Chicks, look at them, they are aging Hens.

Yesterday, I drove by the AAC here in Dallas and they had a big promotion on their screen for the Chick's concert here in December.

I bet that concert will end up getting "re-routed" as well.

Interesting you mention that because just over a week ago Colin Cowherd on his radio show on ESPN Radio (The Herd with Colin Cowherd) was not thrilled that Prince was going to perform at the next Super Bowl halftime show; he openly wondered if it was possible for the Dixie Chicks to perform during the Super Bowl (either pregame or halftime show) and his producer Chadd "The Compass" Scott promptly shot down that idea, say that after the Janet Jackson debacle at a Super Bowl halftime show the NFL would NEVER invite anyone controversial to perform at the Super Bowl. Given the fact that the Dixie Chicks are intensely disliked in the South, Texas and the Midwest, I'm not surprised at Scott's comments.

1st of its kind to work?

Let's for example take france, and Americas boycott of french wines.

If you listen to french winemakers bemoaning the rapid loss of American sales of high end french wines you may change your thoughts.
Until a year ago I had a service company that serviced grocery stores and I would talk to wine representatives and discuss whether they thought there was a decline in french wine consumption by their customers and they were emphatic, YES.

It's not just the chicks that are spewing their political views while on stage.
I wouldn't mind taking my 20 year old son to see C.S.N.& Y.
but I refuse to pay hard earned money to listen to them talk bad about my president, his policies and America.
And there are others.
