    The voice of Natalie Maines, lead singer for the Dixie Chicks, floated across the state Capitol grounds Wednesday as a line of “West Memphis Three” supporters snaked up the steps with a giant banner. Maines was due to arrive any minute. Meanwhile, those rallying for the release of three men convicted in the 1993 slayings of three 8-year-old boys listened to a recording of the Dixie Chicks’ 2006 hit, Not Ready to Make Nice Forgive, sounds good Forget, I’m not sure I could They say time heals everything But I’m still waiting...

    Natalie Maines was recently interviewed by Chris Matthews and the following took place: Matthews: "Well, who were the people that were, let me go back to Natalie, who started this all because you were the voice that spoke? Who went out there and really tried to exploit this against you? Were there any commercial forces that compete with you that said, here's a chance to bring down the Dixie Chicks and, and take the money they'd be getting? I know it sounds Machiavellian but that's the way I am. I'm thinking who is gaining by your demise?" Natalie Maines: "Well,...

    My son argues with me almost every time I use the word "treason" to describe the actions of liberals. His response to my use of the word in a recent column was to e-mail me the following: "Treason is very much in the realm of specific acts pertaining to the national security of the nation, and I don't think being a whiny liberal qualifies as treason." Perhaps, but it comes close. Take, for example, the senseless comments of Natalie Maines, lead singer of the Dixie Chicks. Maines created a firestorm a couple of years ago by telling a British audience...

    Time magazine? The cover? Are you kidding me? Is this some kind of joke? A girls group that, yes, was very big a couple of years ago, but who self-destructed faster than a "Mission Impossible" tape recorder with one inexcusable utterance? A trio of talented girls who have been extremely fortunate, incredibly blessed, but who kissed off the great majority of their fans in an audacious display of hubris, poor taste and grievously un-American disdain for the twice-elected leader of the free world? Yep, there they are – with clothes on this time – unlike the infamous magazine cover they...

    NEW YORK (AP) - The Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines apologized for disrespecting President Bush during a London concert in 2003. But now, she's taking it back. "I don't feel that way anymore," she told Time magazine for its issue hitting newsstands Monday. "I don't feel he is owed any respect whatsoever." As war in Iraq loomed, Maines told the London audience: "Just so you know, we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas." The remarks led to death threats and a backlash from other country stars, including a high-profile spat with Toby Keith. It also stalled...

    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...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 22 - Shortly before becoming chairman of the Federal Communications Commission nearly four years ago, Michael K. Powell said it was time to eliminate the double standard that allowed the government to subject broadcasters, unlike their competitors in cable and satellite television, to indecency and other speech regulations. At the time, Mr. Powell received a Freedom of Speech Award for advancing what broadcasters and civil liberties groups viewed as a courageously principled position. Now, he is being harshly criticized for significantly expanding the indecency rules. He blames a quest for higher ratings for the "increasing coarseness" of programming...

    The radicalization of Middle America Posted: May 28, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 Creators Syndicate, Inc. "A well-heeled audience booed the Dixie Chicks plenty during country music's biggest night of the year Wednesday – proof that patriotism continues to run deep through America." So writes Jennifer Harper, embedded correspondent of the culture wars for the Washington Times, about the reception given the famous girl group every time their name came up at the Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. "They're still all riled up," writes Harper. Indeed, America is "all riled up," and something is going on out there....

    Dear Ms. Maines, I've been a loyal fan of your group for many years now, own every album you've made, and have been to several concerts, but today I'm terribly disappointed. I am an officer in the US Army and a devoted patriot to the United States of America. I’ve listened to country music all of my life because that genre of music best supports my religion, values, and ideals. I am from the Midwest, was raised with cherished values, and am proud of both my country and of the military in which I serve. I’ve served in combat on...
