Dixie Chicks 8 Years Later
Oh no, I said those dreaded two words…DIXIE CHICKS. But, I really have some questions about these ladies, and more importantly, their music and what the consensus is about radio stations playing or not playing it. This topic came to mind for a couple reasons. One, is that the documentary, detailing their “fall from grace” made a few years back, “Shut Up and Sing” will make its debut on CMT on March 26th. Secondly, Natalie Maines has recorded a song for the hit HBO show “Big Love” as detailed at Taste of Country. Finally, after hearing the Dixie Chick-esque rendition of “Landslide” on Glee last week, I just have questions about how the general population feels now, almost 8 years to the day, Natalie made her infamous comments about President Bush at a show in London. Whether or not you agree or disagree with her statement that she was ashamed to be from the same state as George W., you have to admit that plenty worse things have been said about him since 2003.
So, what I’m wondering…
1) What are your opinions of the band now?
2) Would you be offended to hear their old music (like Wide Open Spaces, There’s Your Trouble, Ready To Run, Cowboy Take Me Away, Landslide) on the air?
3) Would you be interested in hearing new music from the Chicks if they put it out?
They say out of sight, out of mind…so now that you see them, what say you?
