Do You Think The Dixie Chicks Should Be Written Off Forever? [POLL]

Yesterday, KLAW played the Dixie Chicks’ ‘Cowboy Take Me Away’ as our KLAW Classic song of the day.

Well, Frank and I talked about it after we got off the air yesterday. We know about the Courtyard Hounds, but we haven’t heard much from the Dixie Chicks.

A little history. You might remember when Natalie Maines, the Dixie Chicks’ lead singer, said onstage: “We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”

After that, fans started turning against the band and a lot of radio stations started dropping the music from their playlists. KLAW leaned away from their music, too. It got pretty bad for the band, and it’s likely you haven’t heard a Dixie Chicks song on our station in years.

I love the Dixie Chicks. For example, ‘Cowboy Take Me Away’ has this fantastical image that a cowboy in a white hat is going to take you away from all your troubles.

My opinion: I miss the Dixie Chicks. I believe in freedom of speech and I think they had every right to say what they said. And what they said shouldn’t be a reason to not listen to their great music and to write them off for the rest of their lives.

What do you think? Should we play more Dixie Chicks? Or should they be put away forever?
