Dixie Chicks sing in front of defaced photo of Donald Trump at Ohio concert
CINCINNATI, Ohio — When the Dixie Chicks kicked off their MMXVI tour in America, it was on a controversial note.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the country group sang “Goodbye Earl” in front of a defaced photo of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. It happened at their concert in Cincinnati on June 1.
The photo showed Trump with devil horns and facial hair.
Trump reportedly responded by saying, “These good-for-nothing women are chicken; they’re no longer chicks. They’re doing to me what they did to George W. 13 years ago. They’re trying hard to learn new tricks, but they’re too old for that and should be ashamed of themselves.”
Earlier this year, lead singer Natalie Maines tweeted, “As long as Donald Trump’s decisions for America are as solid as his decision about his hair, we’re in good shape.”
The Dixie Chicks most recently performed here in Northeast Ohio on Friday night at Blossom Music Center.
