3. Unlikely.
Small, closed minds tend to harbor grudges longer than most.

Their web site has a tour page under construction, so I'm hoping they'll get on the road again.

5. They've been busy having babies recently....
So I can see why they've taken some time off.

Are they really going to release a Spanish Polka album? Lots of conjunto & Tejano music is polka based, so it could be true.

If some of their old fans have abandoned them, they'll have no problem making new ones.

4. BULLSHIT! It's the other way around.
The Dixie Chicks should be considering forgiveness towards the right wing. The Right Wing pigs were WRONG!

9. Next time you're there,
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 01:46 PM by zbdent
pick up (but don't buy):

Ted Nugent CD - (oral sex from a teenager under 18)

Gary Glitter (I think - "Bang a Gong") - Child Pornography arrest

Pete Townshend - Child pornography arrest, cleared

Willie Nelson - advocate for Hemp/marijuana/IRS tax evasion (I know, leftish)

Jerry Lee Lewis - statutory rape and incest

"Natural Born Thrillers" soundtrack - just plain Repuke prop against "morals"

edited to add:

don't forget the DVDs and VHSs of soft-core pornography that the store likely carries anymore

recordable CD pack - music piracy

and slap them down on the counter and educate the owner about his "morals"

12. Thanks - my error
and a faulty memory.

Come to think of it, it might have been the "Rock and Roll part II" song . . .

10. Whether the RW fans forgave the DC or not
is unimportant, The chicks tours are always sold out and their albums sell millions.
