Saw the Dixie Chicks last night..

Awesome show. It was actually better than I expected.

The show began with 'Born in the USA' by Springsteen blaring over the speakers.... the Chicks then came out to thunderous applause and didn't stop for a couple hours.

The song 'Traveling Soldier' was very touching. Natalie was obviously moved by that song especially now with so many of our troops dying lately. There were quite a few people around me with tears in their eyes.

She did mention the 'incident' 4 months ago. The crowd was great and ended up in a rousing round of applause. Natalie then said that when they put this song on their latest CD they didn't realize how meaningful it would end up becoming to them. Here is part of 'The Truth 2":

You don't like the sound of the truth
Comin' from my mouth
You say that I lack the proof
Well baby that might be so
I might get to the end of my line
Find out everyone was lying
I don't think that I'm afraid anymore
Say that I would rather die trying

They sung this song while playing a documentary type video showing protests from the 60s on. The last scene of the video said: SEEK THE TRUTH!

IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!! I love the guts and passion of these women and Thank God they are not afraid to speak the TRUTH.
