NATALIE MAY "DIVORCE" MUSIC CITY
In a recent Los Angeles Times article, Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks compared Nashville to a cheating husband and suggested a divorce might be pending. She told the paper that Nashville did her wrong after she said in March 2003 that she was ashamed to be from the same state as President George W. Bush, and figured it might be time for a clean break between the Chicks and the Music City. "Can you go back to your husband once he's cheated on you?" she said. "I'm not sure there's anything there for us anymore." Meanwhile, fans aren't exactly kicking down the doors to buy tickets for the Dixie Chicks/James Taylor series of dates on the Vote for Change tour. Natalie noted, "We haven't sold out the Fox Theatre in St. Louis. No one there would know from the radio that there's even a show. At least I'm hoping that's the reason."
