Has everyone forgotten the incredible MUSIC that the Dixie Chicks create.... THINK about the MUSIC ......Does the MUSIC sound worse because of ones political views ?....Would Toby Keith's MUSIC sound worse if we discovered he had nine wives ?

The Dixie Chicks were no "accident" They are the top selling female group of ALL TIME, you are an accident! Who cares what they said 3 years ago! This is America A FREE COUNTRY they can say whatever they want! Bush is a jerk and I am PROUD of them for saying so! I went to their concert last night and they ROCKED just like they did on the last tour and there were THOUSANDS of people there, so get over yourself and grow up and remember that you live in America and so do the Dixie Chicks and they can say what they want and should be hated for it. No one hates Neil Young John Melloncamp or Eminem and they have said WAY worse than Natalie Maines. So think about what you say before you open your hateful mouth!

Many veterans have made the ultimate sacrifice for we Americans (yes, including the Dixie Chicks) to have the right to publicly speak our opinions. I just came from the Accidents & Accusations concert in Philadelphia - it was absolutely amazing! The reception these ladies received in the northeast was nothing less than awe-inspiring and the show they put on was fantastic.

I totally agree with Barbara from NJ - I was also at the concert last night and was so moved and inspired. They rock, they are beautiful and they sounded awesome!! I think we might have even impressed them with how welcoming and loud we were. People need to remember this little thing called FREEDOM OF SPEACH!!!!

Denise's post! YOU ARE A LOSER! Marcella is right YOU were the accident. It was absolute BS what became of Natalie's remark. EVERYONE has freedom of speech and just because she is famous, does not mean she gets treated any different when voicing her opinion! You want to dislike them go right ahead but best believe your on losing odds buddy, The chicks have hundreds of thousands of fans, in fact probably millions or hundred millions! And they have probably less than 100,000 haters in this world so get over it, you hold grudges against something that happened 3 and a half years ago! Get a life, grow up and keep ur negative comments about these girls out of this forum!

I spent three hours in Texas recently, I've decided that it should become it's own country. And you can let your grand wizard, imperial leader Monkey Bush sit on his throne and throw all his gold money at the ignorant peions that like to call themselves faithful Americans. Good riddance.

All I know is that the Dixie Chicks are entitled to their freedom of speech just like your or I. But when it comes right down to it, what Natalie said was nothing less than anything any comedian or news broadcaster has said at some point or another. I think the President of your Country has made some bad choices in the past and its like any thing you aren't going to make everyone happy. Everyone has their own opinion and no matter if you are the president or Natalie Maines, or Mel Gibson, or the guy on the street with a cardboard sign, someday some how anything someone will disagree with you.

Get over it the Dixie Chicks rock! And Guaranteed in Canada they will sell out time and time again. One City has 2 dates schedule that's how many people want to see them.

So, if you don't like an artist's personal views, that diminishes the quality of their work?

The Nov. 9th Portland, Oregon concert was less than expected. An hour wait for their arrival after an unknown and dorky warm up band was a disappointment. They are still political and joking apologetic to the republican fans at the concert. Big mistake. Many left before the end of the concert. Although republican, I love the Dixie Chicks music and their gifted talents. I was hoping for an all out fun filled night of #1 hits and their new releases as a way for them to truly entertain their fans and move on from the political blunder --- which was a huge over reaction by the media.

After searching many blogs, your the first to tell me that the show does include political content. I enjoy many musicians that don't share my political views, but I don't want to go to a show that politically aggrevates. To me, music is to take me away (pardon the pun) from reality. I regreted seeing the CSNY concert, even though the music was performed fantasticly, the moment was ruined for me with political overtones. I don't want to make a statement, just hear the Dixie Chicks sing. So it sounds like I'll give up my tickets for the Fresno show this week and just play an album.

Okay, so just WHEN did we suspend the Constitution and especially the Bill of Rights? Freedom of speech is an obligation when our freedoms are imperiled. Why then do enslaved persons sing songs of freedom? I attended the Fresno concert and had a wonderful time. Nobody sat down for most of the concert...even some right wingers clapped with the music! Give up your tickets along with your freedom.
Wow. How foolish, how sad, how cowardly, how un-American!

I hope some of the readers will reflect on the roots of recent rock and roll--and how political commentary laid the groundwork for such timeless performances of introspection and expression. Ignorance is the handmaiden of oligarchy. Keep refusing to reason and to interact and we will soon be smashing store windows in the night and burning whatever books we are told are seditious. Communists burned bibles....The leader of the Evangelical effort in Colorado has been proved to be a hypocrite of the first order, a congressman from Florida hustle litlle boys and his party stumbles over itself over hiding the truth. So a band speaks out. It won't be the first time, nor the last-unless people give up their volition to those who would manipulate us.

It just goes on and on if one chooses to remain uninformed.

I don't think you really did attend this concert at all. I did not see ANYONE,leave early. The whole house was Rockin',clear up to the top seats!

They did play all of their best and new tunes. If you were one of a dozen people who thought that it was not okay for them to mention the recent Senate and House elections.....BOO HOO! That was all it took to ruin your experience? Get over yourself!
