From The Advocate
, gay and lesbian journal, an interview with the Dixie Chicks
You’re really breaking the genre mold for country music. “Not Ready to Make Nice” could be a gay anthem.
Robison: Yeah, I think there’s a certain defiance to our music. These days — correct me if I’m wrong — you almost have to be defiant in the gay and lesbian community just to stand your ground.
I think you’ve gotten a whole new crowd of gay fans because you were so outspoken.
Maines: We’ve wiped the slate clean as to whom we think our fans are, but we do think we have more liberals and more gay men behind us. We have a gay hairdresser and gay makeup artist who are with us every single day, so they fill us in.
You must see a lot of lesbians at your shows.
Robison: They’re usually on Martie’s side. [Laughs] We always tease her that she gets all the lesbians.
Yep, that’s why everybody needs a gay hairdresser and gay makeup artist!
