Oh yea, I remember this. The poor singer was practically run out of the country by Republicans and conservatives for talking about then president, George W Bush!
Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines is lashing out at Republicans for the party’s response to Donald Trump calling for “Second Amendment people” to stop Hillary Clinton.
“I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can practically put a hit out on Hillary and he’s still all over the country radio! Hypocrites!” Maines tweeted early Thursday.

In March 2003, Maines met with a serious backlash when she spoke out against the Iraq War at a concert in London and said she and her band were “ashamed” of President George W. Bush.
“Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas,” Maines said at the time.
