Due to their recent political issues concerning their comments to President George Bush, the Dixie Chicks have faces a sudden downfall in fans. Their music is played less and less on the radio and they seem to be dissapearing. But, like all great Country outlaws (Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson) they continue to produce and their recent album "Taking the Long Way" with its track "Not Ready to Make Nice", which explains their passion for free speech, has sold extremely well. I love the album, myself. They are a shining star in the dwindling genre of Country Music. They remain unpolished and unchanged, unlike the many new stars. If you agree with me, go ahead.
"Made my bed and I'll sleep like a baby with no regrets and I don't mind saying it's a sad sad story when a mother will teach a daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger and how in the world can the words that I said send somebody so over the edge that they'd write me a letter saying that I'd better SHUT-UP and SING or my LIFE will be OVER"
