The Dixie Chicks, Country Music exiles after trashing then-President George W. Bush during a London concert, are trying to get back into country music.
The trio has recorded a cover of the 1960 Brenda Lee song “I’m Sorry” as a way of trying to make nice.
“We have learned the hard way that not wanting to make nice doesn’t work,” said DC lead singer Natalie Maines. “Our careers have been flat since we left country, and we’d like to return to our original genre and recapture some of our magic.”
Emily Robison and Martie Maguire are also in the trio.
Country music fans destroyed Dixie Chicks CDs and lobbied radio stations to quit playing their music after Maines told the crowd at a London concert she and Robison and Maguire were “ashamed” to be from Bush’s home state of Texas.
