How does a group that’s not even nominated for a Country Music Award walk away with wins in all country categories for which they were nominated at the Grammys? Nothing political in that. No, Hollywood wasn’t trying to make a statement or anything.

The Chicks can’t hide their disgust at the lack of support they received from other country performers. “A lot of artists cashed in on being against what we said or what we stood for because that was promoting their career, which was a horrible thing to do,” says Robison.

“A lot of pandering started going on, and you’d see soldiers and the American flag in every video. It became a sickening display of ultra-patriotism.”

“The entire country may disagree with me, but I don’t understand the necessity for patriotism,” Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. “Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country… I don’t see why people care about patriotism.”

Some excellent comments and quotes at Wiz Bang.

And an appearance by Al Gore – what a bonus!
