    Live from the country-music capital of the world, it’s … Beyoncé? That was the case during Wednesday night’s Country Music Assn. Awards, where the pop superstar dropped by to perform her song “Daddy Lessons” with the Dixie Chicks.

    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...

    The Dixie Chicks are at it again. Thirteen years after a public comment against then-president George. W. Bush lead to a backlash from country fans and nearly destroyed their career, the superstar trio are again getting political. Their target this time? Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
  • Dixie Chicks Start 1st US Tour in 10 Years and Have ‘Special’ Message for One Presidential Candidate

    The Dixie Chicks have never been known for their conservative views. In fact, they used to be some of the most outspoken liberal voices in country music. Back in 2003, just days before the Iraq war, lead singer Natalie Maines told a crowd in London: “We don’t want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas” Now they’re taking shots at another Republican- this time a little more subtly:
  • N.C. Gov. claims Springsteen nixed show over poor ticket sales, not transgender rights

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Remember when tickets for Bruce Springsteen's latest tour went on sale in December, and all tri-state area dates were sold out within minutes? North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory claims that was not the case for The Boss's scheduled Greensboro concert — the April 10 gig he canceled in opposition to HB2 or the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act. McCrory implied on the John Boy and Billy Big radio show Tuesday that Springsteen actually nixed the show not in support of transgender and progressive ideals, but in protection of his own ego — McCrory said only 8,000...

    In July of 2003, the Dixie Chicks, a platinum-selling Texas-based country band, was playing a show in England when lead singer Natalie Maines decided to address the contentious debate over whether or not the United States should invade Iraq. “Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all,” Maines told the London audience. "We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas." -snip- The whole incident is worth recounting because here we are, almost 13 years later, and the lead in the Republican primary race, Donald...

    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.

    On Tuesday’s edition of “Fox and Friends” the News crew showcased actress Emily Blunts comments on her new American citizenship that have gone viral. “I became an American citizen recently, and that night, we watched the Republican debate, and I thought, ‘This was a terrible mistake. What have I done?’” she recently told the Hollywood Reporter. Needless to say this has virtually every Republican in our country pissed off. “You know what Emily Blunt just did? She just Dixie Chicked herself,” host Steve Doocy said. “She has alienated half the country that now will think twice about going to one...

    As reported On July 16 2015, country singer Tim McGraw along with Billy Currington will headline a fundraiser for gun control group Sandy Hook Promise in Connecticut. Sandy Hook Promise is a vehicle through which various relatives of Sandy Hook victims have joined to push gun control until it passes. Newtown father Mark Bearden joined the group pledging to “dedicate the rest of his life” to pursuing gun control. McGraw says he supports the Sandy Hook Promise, “Sandy Hook Promise teaches that we can do something to protect our children from gun violence“ and as AmmoLand Shooting Sports News has...

    Court Yard Hounds Not that many years ago, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire filled the Bradley as two thirds of the Dixie Chicks. But the Chicks have been on a long vacation, and to fill the time, Robison and Maguire started another group they call Court Yard Hounds. Wednesday night at the Uline Warehouse, the Hounds drew about enough people for a respectable family picnic. At the scheduled 10 p.m. start time, there were four people in the third row.

    <p>Republicans spend too much time complaining about liberals boycotting the advertisers on conservatives’ shows and not enough time doing the same thing to the Left. If movie stars trash conservatives, we should be very publicly telling people we're not going to their films and we should take credit if they bomb. If a corporate CEO embraces liberalism, don't buy that company’s products and tell the world why you're doing it. Let him explain to his board of directors why standing up for gay marriage or abortion was worth losing millions of dollars. Seventy percent of the country is Christian, roughly half the country supports the Republican Party and forty percent of Americans are conservative. There are a lot of businesses, artists and musicians who simply cannot survive without the support of people like us. The only reason they dare to trash us or publicly support people who hate our guts is because we all too often shrug our shoulders and then willingly hand over our money to people who despise us.</p>
  • Dixie Chicks are back with something new (trying to make a comeback)

    It may be hard to top Shut Up & Sing, but Dixie Chicks are back with something new—and E! News has an exclusive look. The trio of country-singin' ladies and Columbia Records are releasing Dixie Chicks Storytellers, a DVD filled with personal anecdotes and inspiration around some of the band's biggest hits including "Not Ready to Make Nice," "Cowboy Take Me Away" and "Wide Open Spaces." The disc, which drops On Nov.29, will also feature some never before seen performances of "Lullaby," "Easy Silence" and "So Hard," except, you're getting a head start because we have the clip for "So...

    “Is the Hank Williams Jr. incident a parallel to the Dixie Chicks?” asks Radio-Info.com, an insider site for the radio industry...the Dallas-based country trio met with both adulation and criticism after singer Natalie Maines told a cheering London audience that she was “ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas,” just 10 days before President George W. Bush ordered a military invasion of Iraq in 2003.

    In last Thursday’s Stark Country, we revealed that gold spins are on the rise for the Dixie Chicks eight and a half years after the incident that cost them their career. But even after all this time, a surprising number of country programmers say they’re still not playing the group’s past hits. Even those who are playing them are doing so very cautiously, with the politics of each market still playing a deciding role. When asked if all had been forgiven and forgotten when it comes to the Chicks, one programmer responded, “Are you kidding?” We asked programmers how much...

    I was enjoying watching drag racing... the NHRA Mopar Mile-High Nationals, qualifying rounds from Denver Colorado when driver John Force was on camera complaining about a list of the all time great drivers. Keep in mind that drag racing fans are much like country music fans. They tend to be all American conservatives. Just then, Force blurted out "You're like FOX News, Hannity and Beck. All lies. All crap." I had no idea that John Force was that stupid. And I'm not even talking about stupid because he apparently supports the Communist takeover of the USA, but because he would...

    The Eagles sure know how to keep things fresh and interesting on the road. For the veteran rockers' new stadium tour, the band, which often performs without supporting acts, recruited none other than the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban to open shows. (Warning to Urban fans: He's not on the bill for the show at Busch Stadium.) "We're giving people something for their money — not to say they weren't getting their money's worth when they see us by ourselves," Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit says. "Normally, we're on a show of our own, but on this one we decided...
