A Country Catfight Between Dixie Chicks, Reba McEntire

by at . Comments

Insults flowing from someone with a lame sitcom on the WB? We're not sure how seriously the Dixie Chicks can take criticisms from Reba McEntire, but this country catfight appears to be gaining momentum.

The red-haired singer says she's "very disappointed" in the group for comments its made about the country music insutry, along with wel-publicized comments about President Bush.

  • The Dixie Chicks Done Up
  • Reba McIntire Grey Top

Martie Maguire, one third of this controversial trio, told Time magazine the singers don't care very much. They prefer to attract fans who "will grow with us as we grow and are fans for life, than people that have us in their five-disc changer with Reba McEntire and Toby Keith ... We don't want those kinds of fans."

Snaps, yo. In response, Reba defended her field and those within it.

"I've never turned my back on country music," she told the CMT network. "So when somebody talks bad about my music, my family, that does not set well with me. And when you bite the hand that feeds you, I just don't think that's very nice."

Reba also said she was "very glad" the comments about her and Keith were made public because "I was ready to say that because I hope they realize that they're not doing themselves any favors."

Now, about that sitcom ...

There is no need for what the dixie chicks have done and will continue to do I am sure. Reba was just evening out the playing board with the comment she made about "foot in mouth" and that had probably been written by producers and writers of the show anyway. You reap what you sow and if the Dixie Chicks think they can do as they wish and please without consequences they are in for a surprise. And yes, I agree people are free to state their opinion. However, have a little respect for others and if you have nothing good to say, keep your mouth shut.

The Chicks suck,never liked them from the get go,their music is stupid,come on listen to "Earl".as for trashing the President i seem to recall Jane Fonda doing something like this.Reba has a true country voice the chicks do not and are not country singers and have not been played in my neck of the States in a long,long time.don't miss them a bit.they take on Toby and Reba two big time singers.they have no respect for those who opened doors for them.

Even before the dixie chicks talked trash about Pres. Bush and Toby Keith, I always thought they sucked.Now they trash Reba,my suspicions are correct. THEY REALLY DO SUCK!

i like the Dixie chicks bluegrass (alt-country) sound over the mainstream country music of Reba. However, thats a personal taste, the issue here is free speech. That is by definition what music is for, any restriction of this basic human freedom; then one must ask themselves whats the point. A democracy can't work when a minority must hold their tongue because they may offend the majority. I would probably sample more country music if it's collective world-view wasn't so narrow and its politics wasn't more often than not center-right. Ask yourself this, would you dare ostracize Wille Nelson, or Johnny Cash, both in their time for criticizing a war?

Well,I don't agree with Reba's politics,but as a handsome black
Canadian lad,I'd bury my beef between her legs ANY DAY!!!!
The Dixie Chicks' politics are more in tune with mine,but they're fugly,
so if those girls had a true catfight,I'd root for Reba.(And hope one
of the Chicks pulled off Reba's cowgirl blouse so we boys could see her big boobs!!!!)

I for one love Reba McEntire. She is definetly my idol, and when the Dixie Chicks went after Reba, that was war. It's one thing to diss the president but REBA!!! Hell No! And finally speaking as a Texan, i'm ashamed that the Dixie Chicks are from Texas! Reba McEntire is..has been...& always will be The QUEEN of COUNTRY MUSIC!
