Natalie Maines has 'no regrets' on speaking out against the Iraq war in 2003 despite industry backlash... as Dixie Chicks celebrate upcoming release of their first album in 14 years

The Dixie Chicks paid a heavy price with an all-out industry backlash for comments made by lead singer Natalie Maines against President George W. Bush and the impending Iraq war in 2003.

And despite public protests against the band and being blacklisted from country music airwaves, Natalie Maines admitted in the April edition of Allure magazine that she has 'no regrets' about what she said during a concert in London 17 years ago.

The award-winning group (which also includes Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer) took a much needed break from the industry and is now returning to music in grand fashion with their first album in 14 years, Gaslighter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if you loathe country music, please buy this album for someone you know who loves this genre; these ladies, for having had the courage to speak out when it was "unfashionable" to do so regarding the Iraq war, (and in fact, wrecked their career for 14 years), deserve this album to go "double platinum", or whatever jargon passes for highest selling these days.
