The Dixie Chicks aren’t afraid of mixing art and politics.
The Texas-based trio kicked off their DCX MMXVI World Tour on on Wednesday in Cincinnati and they’ve got a new political foe: Donald Trump.
The Dixie Chicks performed their 1999 hit “Goodbye Earl” against a backdrop that showed Trump with devil horns and a comical mustache and goatee.
Natalie Maines is no stranger to political controversy. In 2003, she slammed George W. Bush for his plans to invade Iraq.
Maines is well aware that her political commentary can have ramifications. Ten years after her infamous Bush comments in 2003, the singer told Rolling Stone, “I joke that I have PTSD, but there’s probably truth in that joke.”
But she doesn’t regret speaking out in the first place.
