chick magnet

"Today's column is devoted to a reply to my column from last week, "Shut Up and Sing?" I received many, many replies to that column about the Dixie Chicks' lead singer Natalie Maines' remarks regarding President Bush. I feel strongly that you should read this response to that column from my old friend and mentor and fellow Texan Bill C. Malone. Bill is the dean of country music historians. His groundbreaking book Country Music USA in 1968 set the standards for country music scholarship, and Bill has kept those standards high with a series of books ever since. Bill sent a response to my column, and it is well worth your attention."
