Country Weekly - April 29, 2003

The Dixie Chicks have never shied away from controversy - and sometimes they've happily courted it.  Just look at their ruckus-raising record.
  • Natalie incited Toby Keith's ire last year after saying she hated his song "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)."
  • Their hit "Goodbye Earl," about two vengeful women who poison an abusive husband, upset many who felt it advocated murder.
  • The Chicks sued their record label, Sony, in 2001, claiming the company had cheated them out of millions of dollars.  Band and label settled last year.
  • Their song "Sin Wagon" drew criticism of its saucy reference to recreational sex ("mattress dancing") and also brought a $500,000 copyright-infringement suit from the publisher of the gospel hymn "I'll Fly Away," which it references.
