Today's an anniversary that perhaps the Dixie Chicks would rather forget. It was on this date March 10 in that lead singer Natalie Maines made a comment, quickly heard around the world, that brought their skyrocketing career to a screeching halt.
News was buzzing all over the globe about the United States' impending invasion of Iraq, under the leadership of then-President George W. As Maines was introducing the Dixie Chicks' latest single, "Travelin' Soldier," she said, "Just so you know, we're on the good side with y'all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.
Even though the trio was performing on foreign soil at the time, the comment quickly circulated in the United States, and many country radio stations immediately stopped playing their music. Several country artists, including Reba McEntire and Toby Keith , also spoke out against the threesome, with Keith and Maines publicly bashing each other , both in their music and in the media, as a result. And once we had that song done, it freed us up to do the rest of the album without that burden.
Also in , the Dixie Chicks released a documentary, Shut Up and Sing , which followed the three women as they dealt with the public and media scrutiny following the incident, including threats of physical harm and death wishes. They then went on an indefinite hiatus, with Maines releasing a solo album , and Robison and Maguire forming a duo, Court Yard Hounds.
Maines, for her part, isn't afraid to poke a little fun at her infamous comments, while also standing firm in her beliefs: Leading up to the presidential election, she riffed on her remarks to criticize presidential candidate Ted Cruz , and she's been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.
