Who's Laughing Now?

Talk about justice.....

(CNN) -- The Dixie Chicks sang "Not Ready to Make Nice," but the Grammy Awards were certainly ready to make them winners, honoring the trio with five awards Sunday night.

The Chicks, who ignited controversy four years ago when lead singer Natalie Maines criticized President Bush on the eve of the Iraq war, won all five of the awards for which they were nominated, including the big three: album of the year (for "Taking the Long Way"), song of the year and record of the year (both for "Not Ready to Make Nice").

I have always been a pretty big fan of the Chicks even though I am not especially a country music lover. Their behavior and attitude after the treatment they received as a result of the Bush comment by Maines upped my respect even more. This is really an 'in your eye' to the all the country stations around the U.S. that have blacklisted them. Screw 'em.
