(USC News :South of the Manson Nixon line) Three years after the dreaded comment, the Dixie Chicks are still being ignored by country radio stations. But the subject of their remarks admits they were right about the war. In a speech today President Bush admitted “We should all be ashamed of what I have done in the name of the American people.”
The President has the Dixie Chicks on his agenda because Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson have recently launched a new album, “Taking the Long Way,”. Their first album in thee years is in stores but airplay for the first single “George Bush is still an Ass” has been negatively influenced by the incident.
In March 2003, shortly before the US invasion of Iraq, singer Natalie Maines expressed her feelings towards President Bush during a London concert. “Just so you know, we’re ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas,”
This year, the Chicks new album is not going back to the old sound or trying to apologize to fans. According to band “If people still think George Bush is doing a good job, we don’t want them listening to our music.”
