You know - I really don't care if the song sucks donkey-dicks....I already love it (and I haven't heard a single note of it yet)!!! Ruckiry (not Jon's boss), I really do like the Chicks....or at least half the stuff they do.
A response song to an event that happened three years ago you might ask? But country radio, steeped in some warped right-wing/GOP tradition, hasn't forgotten their 'actions'- so why should the girls?
Billboard can come after me, but I completely 'borrowed' their review:
Not Ready to Make Nice
Producer(s): Rick Rubin Genre: COUNTRYLabel: Wide Open/Columbia (CD promo)
Dixie Chicks' lead Natalie Maines has never been the type to tuck her tail, but after an avalanche of combative censure of the trio at country radio following her 2003 criticism of President Bush, one might expect the Chicks' return to avoid ruffling feathers. Nothing doing. "Not Ready to Make Nice" responds to Maines' hurt and disbelief over the uproar: "They say time heals everything, but I'm still waiting/I'm mad as hell, can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should." The melancholy anthem, produced by Rick Rubin, is beautifully layered, melodically crafty and refreshingly impetuous. Sony is simultaneously taking the song to adult top 40, AC and country. Across all platforms, this is among the major releases of 2006.
