Dixie Chicks lead singer, Natalie Maines has done it again. Yep, the country star caused some drama on her Twitter following the 2012 Grammys on Sunday after insulting country star Jason Aldean.
She created an uproar by commenting, “The Dixie Chicks are ashamed the president is from Texas,” directed towards George W. Bush Jr. in 2003 at a London concert, you would think Maines learned her lesson.
Maines reportedly tweeted, “The good thing about his mic going out is that the song got a lot more in tune.”
During Aldean’s Grammy performance with musical artist Kelly Clarkson performing their hit single, “Don’t You Wanna Stay?” Aldean’s mic cut out towards the end of the song.
This harsh comment lead to a bad response from Maines’ Twitter followers and resulted in some firing back.
One fan posted “Country music star Jason Aldean was singing with Kelly and your tweet was just plain mean – and incorrect.”
Maines later admitted on her account that she in fact did not even know who Aldean was.
“I don’t know him. I just know this wasn’t a good night for him. It happens,” Maines tweeted in response.
Aldean is not the first country star that Maines has taken a stab at either.
Back in 2002 Maines verbally insulted Toby Keith’s country hit, “Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue.”
Maines attacked the song saying she hated it, that it was ignorant and made country music sound ignorant.
“You’ve got to have some tact. Anybody can write, ‘We’ll put a boot in your ass’ …” said Maines.
Keith responded just as fired up with the response of, “I’ll bury her. She has never written anything that has been a hit…”
Keith ended the feud in August of 2003.
It seems as though Maines is better off staying out of the lime light and keeping her thoughts to herself.
