DIXIE CHICKS ARE SCARED
NYPost /Page 6
THE Dixie Chicks say they're in danger of bodily harm from folks who are taking their anti-Bush statements a little too personally. The country trio - who got in hot water three weeks ago for telling a London concert audience they were "embarrassed" that George W. Bush is a fellow Texan - told Australian radio they've been receiving threats and some of their property had been vandalized. "We've gotten a lot of hate mail, a lot of threatening mail," Martie Maguire said Saturday after a gig in Sydney. " Emily [Robison ] had the front gate of her ranch smashed in. We have to have security when we get back to the states. It puts my well-being in jeopardy." Even after seeing Dixie Chicks albums banned from radio playlists, Natalie Maines says she's still shocked at the amount of press her tantrum received, reports Sydney journo David J. Baird . "What is wrong with the world when what the Dixie Chicks say is more important than the war? Why does anyone care what we think?" The backlash has left Maguire with "a combination of emotions. Either I want to speak out more or I'm scared to say anything."
