Presenter Vince Gill urged the audience at Wednesday night's show to "Stop it, stop it." He added: "You know who gets blessed when you forgive — you." Maines has been in the country music doghouse since she told a London audience on March 10, before the start of the war in Iraq, that "we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas." The night was much better for two of the academy's most successful artists. Alan Jackson won album of the year for Drive as well as a video honor, and Brooks & Dunn were the top vocal duo. Brooks & Dunn extended their collection of ACMs to a record 17. Jackson's tally rose to 11. Toby Keith led this year's nominations with eight and avoided a second shutout by being named entertainer of the year. By the time his name was announced, he had left the venue. The show repeatedly saluted the armed forces. The audience erupted in cheers for three freed POWs of the Iraq war who were invited on stage — Chief Warrant Officer Ronald Young Jr., from Fort Hood, Texas; and Pvt. 1st Class Patrick Miller and Spc. Shoshana Johnson, both from Fort Bliss, Texas. Like I've said before: they put the C*nt in country!

The Dixie Cracks were also critical of Toby Keith's song "Angry American" when it first came out. This was before the London concert flap. Poetic justice that Toby won the big one and they got booed. The NRA had a story in the latest Rifleman about the Cracks posing nude for a PETA ad and then pulling it to avoid more controversy. These b$%#%es are hopefully washed up.

Actually they are three guys in drag and their original name was going to be the Chicksie Dix.

I think Toby left early because fatty natalie of the dixie slits (during their concert sequence at the end of the show) wore a tee proclaiming "F.U.T.K." in big letters. I assume that stands for f*ck you Toby Keith. I'd be pretty pissed too. The ending of the show was awkward because of it. Vince mentioned the tee shirt before Toby was given the award.

Saw them in Birmingham last friday nite. A few observations: - They were rolled to the stage in large equipment cases. - Natalie had a shirt that said "Dare to be Free". Like she is some courageous 1st amendment proponent. - From what she said during concert it is apparent she only apologized to avoid any more negative publicity. She made a comment about visiting the civil rights museum and that we in Birmingham know a little about freedom of speech. She went on and on equating their situation to that of civil rights activists of the past. That is a stretch for even a liberal. Upon hearing Natalie's little speech my wife said "she just needs to shut the hell up!" Thats my girl. Long story made short............. They suck. They are liberal crybabies of the worst sort. Think they have done something noble by dogging out the American Gov't overseas. My .02 edited to clarify .......

this reminds me. a few years ago a country station around here was running a contest to win dixie chicks tickets to one of their concerts. to win you had to say "dixie chicks tickets" 3 times in 2 seconds without messing up. people would start out normal then go to dix chicks & chcikens and end it with chicks with dix and chickens. noone ever won as far as I know but it was funny none the less. [lol]
