    Dixie Chicks: We don't want to be country
    Knight Ridder Newspapers
    Sept. 22, 2003

    The Dixie Chicks say they don't want to be a country music band any more.

    "We don't feel part of the country scene any longer," violinist Martie
    Maguire told Spiegel magazine. "It can't be our home any more."

    Maguire said she was disappointed other country singers didn't back up the
    Chicks in their criticism of President Bush's politics on Iraq.

    "A few weeks ago, Merle Haggard said a couple of nice words about us, but
    that was it," she said. "The support we got came from others, like Bruce
    Springsteen."

    Going home empty-handed from the Country Music Awards also made them decide
    to break with the scene, Maguire said.

    "Instead, we won three Grammys against much stronger competition. So we now
    consider ourselves part of the big rock 'n' roll family."

    Hey, we don't want them in the rock world, either. Any hip-hoppers out there willing to take them "under their wing" ?

    A clear statement the Dixie Chick's political pontifications cost them bucks.

    A good example of living with the consequences of one's actions.

    Now let's see if they tank in the world of pop.

    Great News! Does this mean that they are moving to France or some other place that is collecting all of the "shallow thinkers"...????

    I read a comment somewhere that given their political bent it's not suprising that they ran an ariplane into a building. :D

    Yeah, the rock world is peeing their pants in anticipation to buy a bunch of Nashville formula crap from these girls...

    No loss. They belong over there where socialism is the norm.

    My feeling is that there are a lot more rebellious non-socialists in rock than in Hollywood. I think they don't have to toe the party line as much to stay in business.

    Don't these twits ever know when to shut up?

    Running their collective pie holes has cost them millions for sure in current and future sales.

    I hope it was worth it.

    I'm sure I watch and listen to entertainers that are opposed to what I believe in but at least they are smart enough to keep it to themselves.

    Yeah, real good luck breaking into mainstream music you country bumpkins. They're ugly, have an extremely country sound mainstream people find "uneducated" sounding and unappealing, and they have pissed off a large group of their base that might have followed them anyway. Good luck on your career move bitches, I see it going real well, yeah....

    The Dixie Chicks.

    Ugh.

    I'm going to go listen to some Squarepusher...

    In the meantime, this is OT.
