    Thank you for checking out my new page! I have co-written and recorded a song titled "Not Ready To End The Fight." This song is inspired by the fact that I, like many Americans, don't particularly appreciate: the underlying message of the Dixie Chicks' song "Not Ready To Make Nice";the Dixie Chicks' disrespectful remarks about Toby Keith listeners;the Dixie Chicks' disrespectful remarks about Reba McEntire listeners; Natalie Maines saying "You're a dumb f---" in response to the President saying "I don't really care what the Dixie Chicks said."; and all the other Hollywood stars that constantly run their mouths about...

    Some music lovers can't forgive the popular Dixie Chicks for dissing the president and then country music. Just look at ticket sales for tonight at Target Center. If the Bush-bashing Dixie Chicks aren't ready to make nice, neither are many of their fans. "No way I'm going to their concert this time," said longtime follower Elizabeth Wilson, 26, of Dilworth, Minn., who feels burned by the Chicks' big mouths. "They can go to France." Tonight, about 10,000 people are expected to see the Dixie Chicks at Target Center in Minneapolis -- one of their biggest audiences this year, but a...

    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. Billboard magazine and other trade publications...

    Boston's lone country music radio station WKLB-FM/Country 99.5 so far is ignoring the first two singles from the Dixie Chicks' brand new CD "Taking the Long Way" according to a news report on CBS4 News this week. WKLB isn't even paying attention to their summer tour by omitting their July 29th stop at TD Banknorth Garden on its concert section of its website. First album from the Chicks since their George W. Bush brouhaha in 2003 was released this past Tuesday(5/23). First single, "Not Ready to Make Nice" which directly addresses the Bush situation, cracked the Billboard's Hot Country Top...

    (AP) NEW YORK 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 what...

    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...
