Natalie Maines still isn’t ready to make nice.
On Thursday, the Dixie Chicks frontwoman slammed country radio stations for supporting Donald Trump after his incendiary remarks about Hillary Clinton at a recent North Carolina rally.
Maines placed the backlash she faced in 2003 after publicly criticizing George W. Bush and the decision to invade Iraq in marked relief to the response to the GOP nominee’s latest blunder.
“I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can pretty much put a hit out on Hillary and he’s still all over country radio! Hypocrites!” she wrote.
After declaring that she was “ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas” at a London concert before the Iraq war, Maines and her bandmates experienced a vitriolic response from exactly the same country music community that helped catapult them to stardom.
The saga was afterwards documented in their own Grammy Award-winning record “Not Ready To Make Nice” and the documentary “Shut Up & Sing.”
During this election season, Maines has continued to espouse her beliefs to legions of “Dixie Chicks” enthusiasts, most recently performing in front of a defaced image of the presidential hopeful sporting devilish horns and a mustache at the kickoff of their North American tour.
Goodbye, Earl Trump.
