    I hope they do. I mean, people bash the president almost everyday now, so I still do not understand why they are not played on country radio more.

    Do you think country radio will ever embrace them again?

    If they start getting played again, they will just be another reason why I station surf when my radio is on. (shrugs)

    God bless you always!!!

    The Dixie Chicks will probably never be relevant to Country Music again…and I think they’re fine with that.  Their music is too sophisticated and substantive for mainstream country anyway. I think anything we get from them going forward will be folk/rock based, very much like “Taking the Long Way”.   They’ve secured their place in music history, despite the haters and despite getting blacklisted in the year 2004 by Country Music. They’ve achieved more than most artists ever will.  I don’t care how much mainstream success they’ll have ever again, I just hope they continute to make music. They’re very talented.

    There have been a couple times lately I’ve turned on my local radio station, and heard them. Everytime I do it’s a shock though. I hate that country music just disowned them for stating their opinion. I love country music and country artists, but I barely listened to country radio back in 2003 and 2004 for the way they treated the Dixie Chicks.

    I simply ADORE the Dixie Chicks, even more so now than I did back before the controversy and Taking The Long Way album. That album is just pure bliss to me. The girls have talent for days and are incredible people and musicians. Anyone who denies their shear, raw talent is simply ignorant. 

    It’s a total shame how the the industry ganged up against them and took in after them when they should have been embraced. It’s a shame really.

    The better question is will DCX ever record together again? I’m dying for new material from the girls, and who cares if they don’t get radioplay? Radioplay doesn’t sell albums these days. I think they would do just fine with new material, especially since they’ve waited so long. I just hope they record some new material.

    Taking the Long Way Home did well. They just haven’t toured much or recorded anything since.

    I am a HUGE Country music fan but The Dixie Chicks have nothing left to prove after slaying at the Grammys in 2007. If I were them, I would request Country radio to NOT play their music. I don’t want these uber talented girls in any way associated with Miranda ‘5-head’ Lambert, Blake ‘Homophobe’ Shelton, Taylor ‘Tone-deaf’ Swift and all the other talentless hacks who are popular on the radio now. I made a playlist of “Country Women of the 90’s” on Spotify yesterday and boy how I miss those women. Deana Carter, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan, 80/90’s Reba, Pam Tillis, 90’s Martina… now THAT was Country Music…

    BEST POST EVER!!!!! I miss the 80s and 90’s female country music and artists. It’s a shame what the country genre has turned into. I even loved the one-hit wonders like Jessica Andrews, Mindy McCreedy, and Lila McCann. Also, a shout out to LeAnn Rimes, LeAnn Womack, Shania. Deana Carter was so great too, I love her “Did I shave my Legs for This” Record. SOO GOOD!! Now, we have like 3 prominent women in country and that’s about it. Miranda, Carrie, and Taylor.

    Why won’t Faith Hill release new material (besides that “Come Home” cover)?

    Awesome post

    As for the Chicks regaining their old popularity, you can lay good money the answer is “no.” Radio programmers will step over a dollar to pick up a dime, so there is no chance they will play a Dixie Chicks record unless it is some massive radio hit on other formats. And even then, it’s iffy. They’re just too hidebound and fearful of offending anyone (it’s true of other formats as well).

    But as others have pointed out, terrestrial radio is hardly necessary anymore to have a hit record and a sold-out tour, unless you specifically want that market, like Lady Gaga or Katy Perry.

    I’ve long pondered the radio silence from the Chicks ever since “Taking the Long Way” cleaned up at the Grammys and the tour ended. They’ve all got young kids, and they made more than enough money, so I don’t blame them for wanting to go on hiatus. It had to have been shocking to be used as pawns (Sister Souljah, anyone?) in a political game and have it take on a life of its own. I mean, death threats? And to be abandoned by the industry after years of reliably selling millions of records and touring all over the world and doing tons of promotion, everything that was expected of them and more. And boom, they were abandoned.

    That had to be shocking. No wonder they needed to go to ground; I don’t blame them. And with the environment so polarized right now, who would want to invite that kind of bullshit again?

    I do look forward to new music and hope we won’t have to wait too much longer for it, even a stray song for a movie soundtrack or something.
