Back in 2003, the Dixie Chicks alienated a good portion of their fan base when lead singer Natalie Maines told a London concert audience that she was embarrassed to be from the same state as President George W. Bush. Many country music stations responded by refusing to play Dixie Chick songs, and record sales suffered. While I was never much of a Dixie Chick fan (though I have seen them in concert), I did not feel Maines' comments justified a boycott, but many country music listeners obviously felt otherwise. I also don't think the Chicks helped matters by crying "censorship" and posing martyrs for free speech.

AWW SHUCKS, LAST NIGHT THE DIXIE CHICKS WON THE BEST COUNTRY PERFORMANCE, BEST COUNTRY ALBUM, RECORD OF THE YEAR, SONG OF THE YEAR AND ALBUM OF THE YEAR AT THE GRAMMY'S. :D
