Billboard reports that the Dixie Chicks’ new album is receiving a cold shoulder on country radio. It is no surprise that stations aren’t too keen on the first single, “Not Ready to Make Nice,” an in-your-face comeback.
But one pertinent fact is missing from this story (and I haven’t seen it reported elsewhere): old Dixie Chicks songs are retaking the country airwaves. There was a time after their London stunt that the Dixie Chicks were as common on country stations as Metallica. Now, their old stuff is back with fairly routine airplay.
So maybe country stations are not still punishing the Chicks for their left-wing politics, but for individual poor songs?
