I just watched Shut Up and Sing, and I’m blogging to recommend it. The Dixie Chicks went through a lot after that fateful concert in the U.K., and the film chronicles much of that. After watching the film, I have a deeper appreciation for their latest album – Taking the Long Way. The songs on that album aren’t just about struggle and hope but about the specific journey their band had to endure because they stood up for each and for their beliefs. I’m glad they didn’t apologize to country radio, and I love that they were able to get a #1 album without radio.
Thank you for not shutting up, Dixie Chicks.
