The Corner


Lead Dixie Chick Natalie Maines is apparently a bit embarrassed about being from the south. She spent some time in Boston, at the Berklee School of Music, and somehow seems to want to prove her “enlightened” southerner credentials to the folks up north (and apparently, to the Europeans as well). She attacked Toby Keith’s, “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue” (with its kick Osama’s butt line) as an embarrassment to country music (“it makes country music seem ignorant”), and deliberately praised Bruce Springsteen’s take on 9/11 as preferable. (I took the opposite approach.)
