I, for one, stand with Natalie Maines and the Dixie Chicks. It is apparent from this story that country music is as out of touch as the current administration. I’ve heard the new Dixie Chicks album, “Taking the Long Way”, and it is some of their best musical work to date. Plus, the controversy surrounding Natalie is summed up perfectly in the song “Not Ready to Back Down.” However, I will say this…if you base your listening preferences on your favorite singer’s political views, then you’re missing the point. The point is to enjoy good music, regardless of what comes out of their mouth the rest of the time.
And, how about those Louisville Cardinals beating Pitt last night, 66-53? Hmm…where are all the naysayers now. I’m telling you right now, with Jerry Smith and Edgar Sosa and Earl Clark, in 2 years, the Cardinals are going to be phenomenal. We’re talking national championship phenomenal. There, I said it. Commence contradictions and laughter…but we shall see.
