Shut Up and Shut Up
That's my suggestion to the Dixie Chicks, who are apparently the subject of a documentary that the writer
seems to think could swing the election this fall. (Rolling my eyes here).A release is tentatively scheduled for the fall, possibly right before the November elections.
The film revolves around the aftermath of singer
Natalie Maines' statement at a 2003 London concert, where she said, "Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas."
It chronicles death threats, political attacks and radio boycotts against the country trio, and that could make the film a political hot potato as well as potential ammo should longtime Democratic party supporter Harvey Weinstein become involved in the fall political campaigns.
And this is not exactly thrilling:In addition to chronicling the lives of Maines and bandmates Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, Kopple said the documentary features clips from 15 of the Dixie Chicks songs and a new one written especially for the film, though no soundtrack is planned. "You definitely feel like you're in the front row of a Dixie Chicks concert," Peck said.
Hey, I hear scalpers are giving people money to take that ticket!
