I am not a huge fan of country music, but I think the Dixie Chicks have made country music interesting because, among other things, they are courageous enough to speak their mind even in the face of threat and adversity. There was an interview on "60 Minutes" tonight on CBS where they revealed that they received death threats after they spoke out against the war. Did anyone watch it? If so, what do you think?

I agree with you, Dailey. Quite a few well known singers also took a strong anti-war stance, such as Bruce Springsteen and James Taylor, just a name a couple.

I guess the Dixie Chicks were singled out because they are from Texas, and many of the country music fans, particularly Texans, are pro-Bush. The Dixie Chicks are quite talented, and I hope they will make it big again.

It seems that many posters here are young, and they may not be familiar with the group or share in what we believe.

I heard in a commercial during the CMA's that they had something to say about country music fans. does anyone know what they said? BTW country music rocks!!


I could have bought a color TV, but I chose an old black and white one. Deal with it.

it amounted to they don't care, never did, she wants to cross over to pop. The reason her comments were so distasteful to the rest of USA is that she was not here when she said it she was in a foreign country. Which is very insulting to the country (ours).
Me, I hope they bomb right on their butt.

Animom, maybe she was afriad of being attacked or somthing.

Well Im personaly proud of them. They stuck to their guns and didnt appologize because people didnt agree with them. And look at where they are now. The song is played on VH1 every morning when I watch.

I've never been a fan of country music - but I believe that anybody has a right to take a stand for what they believe in. If they have worked hard to succeed and thus are in a position to broadcast their views loudly, then I tip my cap to them and say well done.
Sure is nice to see all the people who claim to be good Christians going around and saying mean things about them. What ever happened to thou shalt love thy neighbor? Oh but I guess you can just pray for forgiveness and that makes it OK.
