Most country artists are smart enough not to alienate half their audience

Washington Post:
The singer brought up the controversy during a discussion about the Ken Burns “Country Music” documentary.
I mostly enjoyed the Ken Burns country music history, but I have no sympathy for the Dixie Chicks.  They made a mistake that Dolly Partain refused to make when asked political questions.  Their talking about their irrational hatred of George Bush was a  mistake.  I think Gill is a fine artist but he also should not be surprised at the reaction of country music fans who are more patriotic than are the leftist.
