The Dixie Chicks are not ready to make nice — at least according to fans who attended a recent DCX MMXVI Tour stop in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Show-goers may not have known what to expect at the tour (which coincidentally kicked off in a presidential campaign year), considering the Dixie Chicks are known for their outspokenness regarding all things political. You may recall lead singer, Natalie Maines, throwing the trio into the fire with her 2003 statement during a European tour stop, “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.”
Facing quite a bit of scrutiny following that comment, the Dixie Chicks are just now reemerging to perform live shows after a ten-year hiatus, but one thing hasn’t changed — their lack of filter when it comes to sharing opinions based on politics.
Fans who attended the Cincinnati stop reported that the trio of talented females used their special effects to send a message to Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump during their performance of “Goodbye Earl.” In fact, some fans even shared the graphics and videos on their social media accounts (which can be seen below). This all comes on the heels of Maines candidly calling out Trump and Ted Cruz on social media.

It appears the Dixie Chicks are, indeed, still not ready to make nice. But, let’s be honest, would we want it any other way?
