CHICKS RECALL DEATH THREATS

The Dixie Chicks describe a horrifying death threat they received in 2003 in an interview with 60 Minutes, airing Sunday, May 14, at 7 p.m. ET on CBS.

The award-winning trio—Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire—became the target of threats after their anti-President Bush comments during a 2003 London concert. In the interview, Natalie recalls that one threat was "definitely scary" because the sender had a specific plan. Emily adds, "(It) had a time, had a place, had a weapon. The letter said, 'You will be shot dead at your show in Dallas' on whatever date it was." The group also discusses their new single, "Not Ready to Make Nice," and the current state of country music.
