DIXIE CHICKS HONORED FOR CONTROVERSIAL QUOTE

Dixie Chick Natalie Maines' infamous quote - "Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas" - was named the year's Best Quote at "VH1's Big In 2003 Awards." When accepting her award from Bill Maher, Natalie said, "There's an old Texas expression. If you don't have anything nice to say, go to London and say it in front of 2,000 people." Other stars at the event included country superstar Shania Twain and country fan Kid Rock.
