The Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines Still Not Ready to Make Nice

The Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines Still Not Ready to Make Nice

You could say that the Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines is not a fan of Donald Trump or country radio. The group’s lead singer made her thoughts known on Twitter on Wednesday night (Aug. 10) in a post about Donald and country radio.

You may recall that 13 years ago—in 2003—Natalie made a comment about President George W. Bush that wasn’t received too well in the U.S. The trio was performing in London to kick off their Top of the World Tour when Natalie made a comment regarding the events going on in the world—at the time the U.S. was about to invade Iraq.

Natalie said to the crowd, “Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”

When that comment got home to the U.S., a backlash ensued. Conservative country fans destroyed Dixie Chicks CDs and turned against the once popular girl group. Radio stations stopped playing their songs and turned their backs as well.

Looks like Natalie is not over the treatment she received from radio, based on her latest tweet mentioning Donald Trump. That’s not the only tweet the “Goodbye Earl” singer has posted about The Donald. The Chicks have even incorporated Donald into their DCX World Tour MMXVI with a very large photo of him complete with devil horns and goatee.

Perhaps she’s trying to bait the Republican Presidential nominee into a twitter war? You be the judge.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
