Last night, I watched the documentary of the 'fall and rise' of the Dixie Chicks, Shut Up & Sing. I have always liked the Chicks' music and anyone who has the balls to lambaste the President during a concert certainly deserve more credit than they are given.
I liked the show so much, I went out and bought their past two albums. I felt compelled to show my financial support because in the movie, they are worried that their new album wouldn't sell well (I guess that Grammy nomination helped).
Some things I learned from the movie:
- The leader singer, Natalie, is married to the guy who plays Nathan Petrelli in Heroes. He's hot.
- They wrote all of the songs on their new album--something they've never done before.
- Between the three of them, they have 7 children--all under the age of 5. Ugh.
- Right-wing nut jobs are absolutely insane. This movie proves it.
