2014.02.20 dixie chicks present

  1. 1. THE DIXIE CHICKS Laura Alderson
  2. 2. About the Dixie Chicks The Dixie Chicks were a band of three women, sisters Martie Erwin Maguire and Emily Erwin Robison, and Natalie Maines. Maines was the lead singer of the group. The Dixie Chicks were a country music band that first started in 1989, but did not become popular until 1998. They went on to produce many songs and preform many concerts.
  3. 3. More About the Dixie Chicks • Then at one concert in 2003 the lead singer announced that, "we don't want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States (George W. Bush) is from Texas". This caused some turmoil in the United States, but did not stop the Dixie chicks from writing songs. They only came out with a few songs after that performance and do not hold many, if any, concerts anymore. Because of this statement about the president they had people protesting outside their concerts and music stores. People would buy their CD’s just to stomp on them. Radio stations even stopped playing their music even when it was requested by listners. Even though they made a mistake and some people hate them they still have fans that love and admire them.
  4. 4. Picture of Emotion. This picture is a bit inappropriate, but it shows the Dixie chicks state of emotion.
  5. 5. What I feel about the Dixie Chicks My personal opinion of the Dixie chicks is that I love their music, and I wish that they would keep producing more music. I am disappointed that because of one mistake that only one of the members made that they all are suffering. I feel that what she said was her opinion and everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
  6. 6. More of My Opinion • I feel that there was a reason for it to be a big deal at the time, but I also think that it should have blown over long ago. Natalie Maines was caught up in the fact that our country was going to war and let her mouth get away from her for a second. It was a mistake and its over now so people should drop it and the Dixie Chicks should write more music.
  7. 7. Video • • I am sorry that my video is a hyper link and not a direct video. I could not figure out how to put the video directly on the power point and could not find anyone who knew how either.
