Gettin’ the yee-haw out
In entertainment news, the Dixie Chicks have decided to leave country music behind:
The Dixie Chicks say they don’t want to be a country music band any more.
Violinist Martie Maguire told Spiegel magazine: “We don’t feel part of the country scene any longer, it can’t be our home any more.”
She said she was disappointed other country singers didn’t back up the Dixie Chicks in their criticism of George W Bush’s politics on Iraq.
“A few weeks ago, Merle Haggard said a couple of nice words about us, but that was it,” Maguire complained.
“The support we got came from others, like Bruce Springsteen.”
This should allow the chicks to expand their following to the coveted higher income/college educated/got more than 14 teeth demographic.
