Haven't hoed a row since I don't know when

The thing is, I would never have heard of the Dixie Chicks if it hadn’t been for the Right Wing cries that they should be shut up. I certainly wouldn’t have listened to their songs and been tempted to pick up an album. It’s a shame so many of their original fan base feels the need to disown them and behave like the stereotyped moronic rednecks you expect to listen to Country music. In the ‘Land of the Free’ no-one should be threatened for exercising their First Amendment rights. But, after all the trouble and the strife, the Chicks seem to be doing quite well, thank you.

“We play both types of music here. Country, and Western.”
