Natalie Maines Calls Country Radio Hypocrites For Supporting Trump
Natalie Maines is not afraid to let people know her opinions. On Thursday, the Dixie Chicks singer took to twitter and put country radio stations on blast for supporting Donald Trump after his subversive comments made against Hillary Clinton.
Maines placed how she received so much backlash in 2003 after publicly criticizing George W. Bush and the decision to invade Iraq in stark relief to the response to the GOP candidate’s latest slip.
“I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can now practically put a hit out on Hillary and he’s still all over country radio! Hypocrites!” Maines wrote.
After Natalie made a statement that she was “ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas,” at a London concert before the Iraq war, she and the rest of Dixie Chicks experienced a nasty response from the same country music community that helped catapult them to stardom.
The whole drama was also addressed in The Dixie Chick’s Grammy Award-winning album titled, Not Ready To Make Nice. They also made a documentary called “Shut Up And Sing.”
During this election Maines has continued to promote her beliefs to the legions of Dixie Chicks fans by most recently performing in front of a defaced picture of Trump’s face with devilish horns and a mustache at the kickoff of their North American Tour.
