Taking The Long Way

May 23, 2006 ~ Never was I so happy to see an album as I was this one. Dixie Chicks release their first album since the controversy that followed Natalie Maines’ comments on then-President George Bush in 2003. Natalie and the band didn’t deserve the hate. And, country radio for the most part were perfect assholes

So when The Chicks came back, they came back with a vengeance. They teamed with Rick Rubin to produce and with the help of some heavy-hitters like Sheryl Crow, Gary Louris, Mike Campbell and Neil Finn, the album wins 5 out of the 7 nominations for Grammy Awards.
