Shut Up & Sing

a semi-worthy watch

a 2006 documentary film about the music group, Dixie Chicks, & some of what they went through from late March 2003, when the lead singer, Natalie Maines, told the audience at a concert in Europe that she was ashamed the President of the U.S.A. is from Texas, on until mid-2006

I don’t really have anything against the Dixie Chicks. I have a couple of their albums from before these last few years, & I intend to buy their latest album, Taking The Long Way, sometime. I don’t really listen to a lot of “country” music. I don’t know if the Dixie Chicks are really considered, or really consider themselves, “country” music (at least, any more) but to me, that’s what country (U.S.A.) music is, & their song, Not Ready To Make Nice, is brilliant, intense, & right on.
