Many listeners still peeved over Maines' slap at Bush in '03.
"In the same interview, Maguire(one of the chicks) says she'd "rather have a small following of really cool people who get it, who will grow with us as we grow and are fans for life, than people that have us in their five-disc changer with Reba McEntire and Toby Keith. We don't want those kinds of fans. They limit what you can do."
"When you are a celebrity or in the spotlight, you have to learn to bite your tongue and keep your mouth shut no matter what your opinion is," Dahl said. "You would have thought they learned from the first comment they made. I think they rekindled an old fire."
What an utterly stupid thing to say. Insulting potential fans seems a funny way to sell albums. Insulting other stars also seem very petty and not a good way to advance your career. The anger about the Bush comments has lasted a long time. The Chicks seem to want to keep their exicle from theSouthern music stations permanent.
