The Dixie Chicks find new ways to lose fans.

From an article in the Telegraph:

"The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism," Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. "Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country… I don't see why people care about patriotism."

There can be no rational explanation of how Maines's remark came to drive a red-hot poker into America's divided soul"

I planned on making a bunch of comments about Queen Elizabeth, to help you understand patriotism, but I chose not to, since so many of your (better) countrymen are our allies. I assume they have to deal with moonbat morons, like yourself, just as we do.

We got pissed because you went to another country and badmouthed the commander-in-chief during a war, thereby, providing propaganda for our enemies and hurting our brothers in combat.

Not only does the country disgree with you, Natalie, but, more importantly, your demographic disagrees with you.
Sell your cds in NY and LA. Don't wander around Nashville. You may be justifiably spit upon, by your 'fans'.

Maybe that's why your interviews are only with The Telegraph.
