What is sad is how alot of country radio station refuse to play their music because of their political views. Basically, all they said was "We are ashamed that the president is from Texas" at a concert in London. This wasn't a very smart thing to do because they should of realized that most of their fans were extreme right wing conservatives but I certainly don't think they should be chastised for their opinion. If they weren't in the genre of country music nobody would care, and there would be no political issue.

BTW, in a "it's a small world" category of anecdotes, not too long ago, my wife's niece broke up with a fellow who lives out in Hollywood and is trying hit it big in films (he has actually already had a few small parts, in Bad Boys II among others)...Not long after moving from Florida to Hollywood, he actually stumbled into a sweet gig...House-sitting for Natalie Maines while her and her fellow c*nts were out on tour....This guy, who is fairly liberal himself, described Ms. Maines with the same four letter word I've been using for her. Said she is one of the most arrogant, condescending, egotistical shrews he's ever had the displeasure of meeting.

Good for them. I've never really given a flying f**k about the politics of an entertainer. I'm also inclined to laugh my ass off at those that obsess over an entertainer or actors views or statements, pro or con.

That said, I always liked their Entertainment Weekly cover. Two of them are quite attractive, IMO. :thumb:

It's less sweet than most energy drinks, that's what I like about it. It also doesn't give me the gutrot that a lot of them do. I don't do caffeine well, so I'm assuming it doesn't have a lot of caffeine in it.

You know, we didn't go out to see MI3 because the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX and I just decided not to fork over our money to what's-his-name because he's such a tool. I think I'll apply the same logic to the d-chicks.

For the price of that album, I could probably buy a month's supply of Hamburger Helper. Or, send another check to the new vet rehab center.

The problem is saying something like that overseas while our troups lives are in danger in a foreign country . That gives aid to the enemy. You know like when Kerry encouraged the Vietnamese to stick with the war. :shake:

I used to love the Dixie Chicks . Now I cant leave the radio on the same station when they come on. Just like Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon have forever ruined Bull Durham for me. Its not a political statement on my part, I just have such disrespect for their wild views that I cant look at them without thinking about their views. I wish I could. Luckily the guy serving me a Big Mac at McDonalds doesnt lecture me on his beliefs before handing me my food . I think his views are just as relavent and appropriate to my dining experience .

I don't think most of the Dixie Chicks past/present fans are "extreme right wing conservatives" I think they're mainstream conservatives who make us the 60 Million plus people who have voted Bush and the Republicans to power for the past several election cycles.

The bottom line it's their right to say whatever they want but they insulted mainstream country America and that's stupid as it relates to their business.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Several concerts on the Dixie Chicks' "Accidents & Accusations" tour have been canceled after slow ticket sales, but the group says it has replaced them with other dates.

Kansas City, Houston, St. Louis, Memphis and Knoxville are among 14 cities no longer on the original schedule released in May, according to a revised itinerary posted Thursday on the Dixie Chick's Web site.

Other shows, including Nashville, Los Angeles, Denver and Phoenix, have been pushed back to later dates.

And this proves what?

That their 'redneck'* and RWNJ fans can hold a grudge and will spend $15.00 (or DL for free on Limewire) for their CD but don't want to spend $50.00 for a ticket.

Do you buy concert tickets to every band of which you purchase a CD?

Well superchunk,

If this is your view, what were you doing the truffle shuffle for when beginning this thread? Is it that their "Astute, informed progressive fans" are the only ones who can afford their albums, but can't afford to attend their conferences? You know...the hairy arm pitted, college vegan ruts that braid your backhair?

Or does it show that however the original numbers were skewed, you were incorrect and their true fan base would prefer they were fiddling for dollars out in front of the Lane Giant that Maines was clerking?

No, I think it's that, buying a CD is an easy way for yuppies to make a statement, but going to a concert would be . . . sweaty, and you might run into a redneck.

Cochise
08-09-2006, 08:58 AM
Anyways, I think the fact that people will buy their CD but don't want to see them in concert reinforces the notion that a lot of consumers really do have the "shut up and sing" attitude towards celebrities.

I think most people who have gone to a number of concerts have been at one where one of the performers starts preaching. I'm sure people expect it's going to happen at a dixie chicks show too, doing that is what got them embroiled in all this in the first place.

I think their fans are staying away because they don't want to hear it. They like country music and will listen to it, but as far as paying $50, $60 a person or more to be browbeat about Bush being de debbil, obviously nobody is after that.

It also seems telling that in country music's most popular regions are where the dates are getting dropped, and shows are being added in Canada instead.

"They say Bush sucks on the record? must spend $15!!!"

And in the same vein, if you pair the Dixie Chicks up with Neil Young on a tour or something, I bet they would go over well with the audience.

"Skanks" - that's a great description of them for having a differing political view.

I have a real problem with the typical country music listener. Honestly, it's not the greatest album they've done, but it's not bad, if you listen to music because, you know, you like music.

OK..."typical" Country Music listener here...please enlighten me as to what kind of problem we are causing for you.

As for my opinion of the Dixie Chicks....they are too angry to put out good music that the average Country Music fan would like.

I didn't buy the new CD because I didn't get the urge to listen to them be childish....I might miss some good music, but their idea to push the album with "Not Ready to Make Nice" didn't set right with me.

Last night at the Trace Adkins/Chris Cagle concert, they menionted the Dixie Chicks during one of the songs and they got booed. None of the country stations I listen to play them anymore.

Also I agree with mmaddog on the Chicks being angry and I am a typical country music listener as well. The Chicks screwed themselves basically, not so much with the Bush commented but going after the pro-soliders group, which majority of the country is for. Pro-soliders is not pro-war, its supporting the troops where ever any of our leaders send them Iraq, Kosiva etc.

Music is music regardless of people's political views. If you like the music for the music, none of that matters. Raw anger or joy or compassion or whatever raw emotion it is produces some of the most real and honest music there is. "Not ready to make nice" comes out of incredible pain, you can hear it EVERY time she sings it and that, to me, makes it great music.

I'm sorry about the harsh judgment about the "Typical " country music listener...I often feel like those who listen to that type of music listen to it because it is defined as "country" music and not because it holds artistic value for them.

It's not their political views that turn me off to listening to TDC....it's their childish response after their fans expressed their views. Natalie shot off her mouth and expected that there would be no repercussions...and when the fans let her know what they thought, she and the girls pouted.

What incredible pain did Natalie Maines feel? She was cocooned by the people who came to her "rescue" vilifying those people who would have the audacity to exercise the same privilege she did with her statement.

Sorry....she doesn't even begin to know the true pain that most of her fans feel on a regular basis...you know the daily struggles to make ends meet on a paycheck that probably matches what MS. Maines wastes in a 2 hour span.
