You could say that the Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines is not a fan of Donald Trump or country radio. The group’s lead singer made her thoughts known on Twitter on Wednesday night (Aug. 10) in a post about Donald and country radio.
I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can practically put a hit out on Hillary and he’s still all over country radio! Hypocrites!

You may recall that 13 years ago—in 2003—Natalie made a comment about President George W. Bush that wasn’t received too well in the U.S. The trio was performing in London to kick off their Top of the World Tour when Natalie made a comment regarding the events going on in the world—at the time the U.S. was about to invade Iraq.
Natalie said to the crowd, “Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”
When that comment got home to the U.S., a backlash ensued. Conservative country fans destroyed Dixie Chicks CDs and turned against the once popular girl group. Radio stations stopped playing their songs and turned their backs as well.
Looks like Natalie is not over the treatment she received from radio, based on her latest tweet mentioning Donald Trump. That’s not the only tweet the “Goodbye Earl” singer has posted about The Donald. The Chicks have even incorporated Donald into their DCX World Tour MMXVI with a very large photo of him complete with devil horns and goatee.
Perhaps she’s trying to bait the Republican Presidential nominee into a twitter war? You be the judge.

Trump is going to do a good deal with Cuba because he has a lot of friends in Miami that will help him make a “good deal”.
