Celebrity Whine Rack - Dixie Chicks
Dixie Chicks can not understand the lack of support since Friday, March 10, 2003 when Natalie Maines stated "just so you know, we're embarrassed that the President of the United States comes from Texas" at Shepherd’s Bush in London, United Kingdom. "A lot of artists cashed in on being against what we said or what we stood for because that was promoting their career, which was a horrible thing to do," stated Emily Erwin Robison in an interview with Adam Sweeting on Thursday, June 15, 2006. "A lot of pandering started going on, and you'd see soldiers and the American flag in every video. It became a sickening display of ultrapatriotism. The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country. I don't see why people care about patriotism." stated Natalie Maines in an interview with Adam Sweeting on Thursday, June 15, 2006.
