Dixie Chicks Explain Anti-Bush Comment

Dixie Chicks Explain Anti-Bush Comment

3/13/03, 5 p.m. ET) -- The Dixie Chicks are stirring up controversy with a recent negative comment about President Bush while overseas promoting their current album, Home.



The trio performed a live show in London on Monday (March 10th) night, and Natalie Maines (news) told the crowd, "Just so you know, we're ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas."


That statement prompted all kinds of reactions from the American public, causing the group to further explain their stance on their official website. "We've been overseas for several weeks and have been reading and following the news accounts of our government's position," the group explains. "The anti-American sentiment that has unfolded here is astounding. While we support our troops, there is nothing more frightening than the notion of going to war with Iraq (news - web sites) and the prospect of all the innocent lives that will be lost."


Maines also says, "I feel the President is ignoring the opinions of many in the U.S. and alienating the rest of the world. My comments were made in frustration and one of the privileges of being an American is you are free to voice your own point of view."


The Dixie Chicks will perform another live show in Munich, Germany on March 19th.


-- Margy Holland, Nashville

Yes it is - everyone and everything that does not support GWB will be renamed as French and anything French that we like will be renamed as Freedom.

So does that mean I'll have to Frenchbean or daisyfrench....

Anyway I agree with the Fizz

don't worry deep in HELL, I didn't take offense because I'm just a redneck, hick girl who listens to their music, and don't know nothing about politics. Now that I have new-used tires on the chevy finally, I'm gonna mosey on down to the county fair and drink Pabst Blue Ribbon til my eyes float. (I'm joking, just trying to dispel the myth that only "certain" people like country music. )
