I'm not a country music fan, but this film made me a fan of the Dixie Chicks.

Great Video ~ I've always liked the Dixie Chicks & never burned or got rid of my Dixie Chicks cd's. So Natalie stated that she was ashamed that the President was from Texas. Really? Big Deal. She said what a lot of people thought & those who didn't agree "Wow" were they very pissed off! Radio station of country music were told not to play their songs by the public or they wouldn't listen to their station. Freedom of speech is not really free sometimes there's a price to pay depending what is said & if the public agrees or not. I'm glad they stuck it out & didn't give in to the public & they still had lots of fans on their side :)

good music, good story, odd adult's don't remember what their parents told them (watch what you say...you never know who's listening) after all most of the manorisms we practice in childhood carry through our adult lives and much of the movie is just that, adult's behaving like children hence the title, "shut up and sing".

This documentary by filmmaker Barbara Kopple (Winter Soldier, Harlan County, USA) covers the period immediately before and after Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines told a London audience, "We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed
that the President of the United States is from Texas" on March 10, 2003. Her anti-war stance was deemed anti-American by country radio stations which proceeded to refuse to play any of their songs, new or old. This film provides an intense view of
how censorship and rivalry between country singers such as Toby Keith play out in the business world and its personal impact on the Dixie Chicks themselves. Indeed, it makes oneself ask, If a media consortium is trying to kill a music group for its political views, is the enemy of freedom really not abroad but at home?
