Texas based Country hot shots The Dixie Chicks are facing a boycott
from country fans after singer Natalie Maines told an audience at a London
show: “Just so you know, we’re ashamed the President of the United States is
Callers to Nashville radio station WKDF-FM were outraged at the comments and
urged people to boycott the band.
The band have subsequently told reporters: “While we support our troops, there is nothing more frightening than the notion of going to war with Iraq and the prospect of all the innocent lives that will be lost.”
What a moron this girl is! Doesn’t she realise that her public, country fans, are some of the most patriotic in the US? One wonders whether the two sisters that make up the rest of the Chicks might sack her blonde butt, if their career takes it in the shorts because of her stupid comments.
Might we see enraged country fans trashing their Dixie Chicks CDs on the streets? Natalie has not apologised yet. No doubt she thought because she was in London she could be anti-Bush/US and get away with it. What an idiot!

A music source tells me that at least 2 big stations have dropped the Chicks from their playlists in protest.
