Dixie Chicks Redeemed?

Leave a comment

February 15, 2007 by Stephen

In the Tuesday edition of the USA Today Opinion Page, the editorial board shared a brief blurb about the Dixie Chicks winning five Grammy awards. Here’s the quote that stood out to me:

“Whether the music industry professionals who awarded the Grammys were making a statement beyond artistic merit is hard to ascertain. What is clear, however, is how the trajectory of the Chicks’ comeback mirrors the rise in anti-war sentiment. That sentiment has gone mainstream and is reflected even in once unquestioningly pro-war country music.”

Did the Dixie Chicks win because their music was the best? I’m afraid not, and that is a shame for all parties concerned.
