The Dixie Chicks: American Heroes

The new CD by The Dixie Chicks has just completely blown me away by its courage, passion and intensity.

Taking The Long Way is a powerful message that doesn't hide its politics, anger, and disappointment from its audience.

The interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air today offered the insightful details from the trio about the whole Bush incident and the reaction from the three Rs (Rural Religious Right).

It's great stuff... and this comes from a guy who has never purchased a country album before this one -- unless you include The Eagles early recordings!
