It wasn't too long ago the Dixie Chicks were shunned and now they are receiving awards. Do you think that more people are now embracing their political views as well?
Grammy digs Chicks! - The Dixie Chicks completed a defiant comeback on Sunday night, winning five Grammy awards after being shunned by the country music establishment over the group’s anti-Bush comments leading up to the Iraq invasion.
The Texas trio won record and song of the year for the no-regrets anthem “Not Ready to Make Nice.” They also won best country album, which was especially ironic considering that the group says they don’t consider themselves country artists anymore.
This has been the talk on all of the radio shows today. Most shows are calling this a political award and nothing more. They too were surprised that they won for country after the country music fan base basically banned them, and they too banned the country music. Go figure!
