Celebrities' Political Affiliations

The Dixie Chicks (Democrats)

The Texan trio were outspoken critics of Bush's presidency. In 2003, lead singer Natalie Maines came under fire for saying she and her bandmates were "ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas." Texas-based radio stations didn't take too kindly to the Chicks' anti-Bush sentiments, and responded by removing Dixie Chick songs from their playlists and hosting "Chicken Toss" gatherings, at which angry fans were encouraged to throw the group's albums in the garbage.
