Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks Goes Solo [Video]

It's been ten years since the Dixie Chicks' scandal rocked the country music world.  It was March 10th of 2003 that Natalie Maines told a London audience that was she "ashamed that the President of the United States (George W. Bush) is from Texas."  And since that time, it's been a mixed bag.  There have been major successes and major disappointments for the trio.  Among the successes, fivetrophies at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards.  Their comeback effort, Taking The Long Way, was named Best Album and Best Country Album.  Their defiant anthem "Not Ready to Make Nice" was named Record of the Year and Song of the Year.  And the group won the award for Best Country Vocal Duo or Group.  Among the disappointments, the Accidents and Accusations Tourwhich launched the same year.  Ticket sales were strong in some parts of the country . . . a total bust in others.  Some dates were moved from arenas to smaller venues.  Some dates were canceled outright.  While the industry had welcomed them back with open arms, many of their fans had not.  For the Chicks, things just haven't been the same.  And now, Natalie Maines, the group's lead singer, is branching out on her own.

Dixie Chicks Resurface…Kinda, Sorta…Well, Just Barely

Hard to believe, but in recent years I had forgotten all about the big Dixie Chicks controversy back in 2003. But a couple of recent articles by writer Phyllis Stark--one about Chicks music finding its way back onto the country airwaves, the other about programmers still quite wary of playing it--stirred some memories and opened a line of thinking.
