REMEMBER WHEN?

The Dixie Chicks were an up and coming country, bluegrass roots and rock ’n’ roll music band who were really taking off as musical performers.

That all changed when a simple comment appeared to insult the then president of the United States.

Many fans, radio stations, individuals turned against them because of a single comment.

The lead singer was exercising her “freedom of speech”.

The aftermath was  very negative including death threats towards them and their families.

Not Ready to Make Nice” is one of my favorite songs from the Taking the Long Way album.

It expresses still their feelings some time after “the incident”.

I can barely being to imagine how they felt.

Yet …. they are back!!!

The Chicks, whose bluegrass roots and rock ’n’ roll spirit broke down country music barriers and made them the best-selling female band of all time in the United States, were in the middle of a lengthy hiatus. The trio had not been heard from since scaling back a 2006 tour that suffered from continuing reverberations from “the incident”:

a remark the singer Natalie Maines had made about President George W. Bush a few years earlier.

Not Ready to Make Nice” is a song co-written and performed by American country music band Dixie Chicks.

It was released in June 2006 as the first single from the band’s seventh studio album, Taking the Long Way. It remains the band’s biggest hit in the US to date. The song was written by Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire, Emily Robison, and Dan Wilson.

“Not Ready To Make Nice”

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

What it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting …
