  • Dixie Chicks Perform with Background Portraying Donald Trump as the Devil

    The Dixie Chicks kicked off their DCX MMXVI World Tour Friday in Cincinnati by performing in front of a massive backdrop showing Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump with devil horns on his head and a satanic mustache and goatee. Last night’s politically-charged performance wasn’t the first time the Texas-based country music band used their celebrity status to take shots at a major Republican party leader. During a performance in London in 2003, Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines told the crowd that she was “ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas.” Maines’ attack on President George...

    Natalie Maines infamously spoke her mind about war and then-President George W. Bush back in 2003, when she told a London crowd that she was “ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.” Now, the Dixie Chicks member is bringing that comment back to mind and voicing her opinion on Republican presidential candidate (and fellow Texan) Ted Cruz.

    Imagine you’re about to go on a first date. You Yelp the restaurant, naturally, to make sure that it has something edible on the menu; then you Google the person, naturally, to make sure that they’re not obnoxious on social media. Simple enough! In a (perhaps inevitable) new development, these two perfectly innocuous Internet searches are coming together in Peeple, an app that will allow users to rate and search other human beings. It’s Yelp for people, and it’s coming in November. When the app launches, users will be able to review their friends, coworkers, and romantic partners — who...

    December 14, 2006 The End of The Dixie Chicks The Dixie Chicks have been together since 1989... But it seems Natalie Maines' political outspokenness has brought the end of the band! Emily Robison, Martie Maguire & Natalie Maines have announced that they are going to split up after the Grammy Awards in February 2007. The Chicks are tired & wrung out, they’ve come to the end & they want a break from each other to spend more time with their families. But the real reason behind the split is political. Robison & Maguire have supported many of Maines' political beliefs,...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews invited the Dixie Chick on last night's Hardball to promote the new documentary Shut Up and Sing and asked them if they felt their anti-Iraq position has been vindicated, to which the Chicks responded with martyred terms of being put on Free Republic's and "Christian fundamentalist" country fans' "hate list." The following exchange occurred on the October 26th edition of Hardball: Chris Matthews: "Martie, I get the feeling at the time that you folks, when you made that statement and you all stood behind it and took the heat for it, that the country world out there...

    No one has silenced you I’ve gotten so sick of these fence sitting celebrities making comments about the President then bitching because no one wants to buy their records or go to their shows. I had to address the Dixie Chicks on their own site dedicated to “Free Speech.” I thought long and hard about registering and posting on this site as I do not agree with the political views of these women. No doubt many people like myself who have chosen to do so will be mis-represented when these women boast of the amount of people flocking to their...

    Talk about cajones:'s Kristinn Taylor's got 'em. How so? the conservative website led the outcry against the once popular country band Dixie Chicks when singer Natalie Maines screeched how she hated that President Bush hailed from Texas. Well, last week at the Washington premičre of the Chicks' decidedly anti-Free Republic documentary, Shut Up and Sing, Taylor showed up. But he wasn't kicked out, reports our Elizabeth Green. The hosts at the lefty Center for American Progress invited him to join the group discussion, where he told the director the movie was a good one. Why go? "This was a...

    Natalie Maines of the 'Dixie Chicks' created quite an uproar the night of the president's decision to declare war on Iraq in 2003. Maines stated that the Dixie Chicks as a whole were 'ashamed' of the Bush decision and Maines said she was "embarrassed he was from Texas." The group refused to retract their statement, and instead responded to the criticism by releasing their new single 'Not Ready To Make Nice,' earlier this year. According the New York Post's Page Six, The Chicks' biggest detractor, founder Jim Robinson, reportedly declined to appear in their documentary, "Shut Up and Sing."...

    More than 20,000 Dixie Chicks fans in Houston bought the band's latest album, the 1.5 million-selling Taking the Long Way. That much is clear, along with the fact that the Dixie Chicks' Houston concert date was canceled. The promoter blames the radio stations. Initial reports cited slow ticket sales. But tickets for the Toyota Center show never went on sale. The country radio stations credit their listeners with the cancellation and blame the Chicks for a bad attitude. The fans will have to book trips to Dallas or Austin. Louis Messina, president of the Messina Group, the Houston-based concert promoter...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Several concerts on the Dixie Chicks' "Accidents & Accusations" tour have been canceled after slow ticket sales, but the group says it has replaced them with other dates. Kansas City, Houston, St. Louis, Memphis and Knoxville are among 14 cities no longer on the original schedule released in May, according to a revised itinerary posted Thursday on the Dixie Chick's Web site. Other shows, including Nashville, Los Angeles, Denver and Phoenix, have been pushed back to later dates. The North American leg of the tour kicked off July 21 in Detroit.

    The Dixie Chicks' Oct. 7 concert at Sunrise's BankAtlantic Center has been canceled. No one wants to say precisely why or whether the show will be rescheduled -- at press time a venue official said confirmation is forthcoming, and the Chicks camp in Nashville did not return phone calls or e-mails. But according to Pollstar, the concert industry's trade organization, the Oct. 7 date is now reserved for a concert in Australia. The conservative country music community has had a beef with the Chicks ever since lead singer Natalie Maines spoke out against President Bush and later criticized country fans...

    Country star Reba McEntire has weighed in against the Dixie Chicks again, after they criticized fans of her music. The pair first came to blows after the group criticized President George W. Bush's -- a close friend of Republican McEntire -- decision to go to war in Iraq. Although they later apologised, singer Martie Maguire recently took back the apology and claimed the furore had helped them connect with their audience, adding an attack on McEntire: "I'd rather have a small following of really cool people who get it, who will grow with us as we grow and are fans...

    But don't question theirs (gallon-sized hat tip: Coalition of the Swilling)... The Chicks can't hide their disgust at the lack of support they received from other country performers. "A lot of artists cashed in on being against what we said or what we stood for because that was promoting their career, which was a horrible thing to do," says Robison. "A lot of pandering started going on, and you'd see soldiers and the American flag in every video. It became a sickening display of ultra-patriotism." "The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism,"...

On Saturday, June 3, he performed a few songs at the McLeansville shopping center and then with his band ABSENT ELEMENT at Jamieson Stadium in Greensboro. But there is a part of the story that you probably didn't read. The show was hosted on stage by CLASSIC ROCK 92, an FM station in Greensboro. Among the announcements made by the DJs was that they would be giving away tickets to the upcoming concert by the Dixie Chicks. When that announcement was made,...

    Disappointing airplay for the first two singles from the new album by the Dixie Chicks exposes a deep -- and seemingly growing -- rift between the trio and the country radio market that helped turn the group into superstars. "Taking the Long Way," due out May 23, is the band's first album since singer Natalie Maines sparked a major controversy in 2003 by declaring that she was ashamed to hail from the same state as fellow Texan President George W. Bush. Radio boycotts ensued, and many fans abandoned the band. The first single, "Not Ready to Make Nice," peaked at...
