The Dixie Chicks

I'm sitting her listening to the Dixie Chicks for the first time thanks to John Baker who reminded me of their bravery in speaking out about George Bush and the way they were subsequently vilified. This in the land of free speech, a supposed democracy.

It's great music, Taking The Long Way, and deserves to be widely heard. This is exactly what we should be fighting for.


  1. Dixie Chicks rule.

    I worry about them.

  2. The MD drools over the fiddler and the banjo player and come to that singer as well!
    Not usually a great country fan - I'm more into Dr John, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Erma Franklin etc, but I love them. Going to see 'The Five Blind Boys of Alabama' next month - should be cool.
    Oh don't get me on music I'll never stop!
