The Dixie Chicks!
As Nelson would say, "Haw, haw."
Oh wow gee whiz, what an accomplishment, being more popular than Bush. The church hat rack could do that.
In that case, let me rush right out and buy their latest CD!
Not a chance.
Actually, both the CD and the single from it that won, "Not Ready to Make Nice", are pretty doggone good music. Way to go, Chicks!
Yeah, but the hatrack woulda won over the Chicks a couple of years ago.
DixieChicks have benefitted from a steady stream of positive promotion in Rolling Stone, Time magazine, New York Times, Variety, CBS News, MSNBC etc etc. Heck, I could probably sell CD's under those circumstances.
When I don't know about a singers political views, their views don't influence my enjoyment of their music.
But when I lisen to the "Chicks" I think politics. :tonofbricks:
Dixie Chicks Are Wanna Be's
I don't think the Chicks need to get excited about winning Grammy Awards. Those awards prove nothing. On their last tour of the United States they had to cancel concert dates while bands with real talent had to add concert dates. The Dixie Chicks are not that popular and their winning Grammy Awards does nothing to help them. When they start selling large numbers of albums and when they start having to add concert dates, instead of canceling dates, then we can talk about their popularity.
As for being more popular than Bush, well, my dog could achieve that goal.
You may not like them, but they have real talent.
They don't write their songs, and studio musicians do most of the work.
Other things more popular than Bush:
3) E. Coli
4) the IRS
Perhaps, but as someone truly talentless, I admire their ability to sing.
:laugh::laugh::laugh: you win!
I have heard their songs. While there is some promise there that promise is yet unfulfilled.
:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Besides, they sing country. Ew.
You have a point, but there is some sweet irony in this. :laugh:
I won't either; I don't listen to their genre of music. But, if I did, I would probably buy two!
Sing Country + *wink*
They might be popular, but I suspect the people badmouthing them had something to do with that.
Being politically incorrect has its positive side.
Their talent has never been in question. It is the peanut sized brain and grapefruit sized mouth of Natalie that caused the problem.
The Grammy is a much coveted award by Country performers but have always been notoriously hard to pick in advance, primarily because many of the voters wouldn't know a country artist or song if they heard one.
This is hardly vindication for the Dixie Mouths.
