Dixie Chicks - “Not Ready to Make Nice”
I’m admittedly one of those people that generally likes most music, with the exception of country. And I suppose the exception of country should come with its own exception — the Dixie Chicks (and, ugh, some Taylor Swift as well).
Anyways, long story short… I think this is one of the best albums. I may be very influenced by a documentary I watched about the Dixie Chicks post-George-W-Bush-hating-comments and the subsequent recording of this album in the midst of backlash (which is fantastic by the way, I can’t recommend watching it enough). The film is called Shut Up and Sing and is a heartbreaking portrayal of how Americans handle criticism.
