Whistling Dixie

Posted by Katie Johnston Chase February 12, 2007 12:22 PM

The minute the Dixie Chicks won their fifth and final Grammy last night, I got up from the couch and bought the album of the year/song of the year/record of the year on iTunes. I'd heard a few of the songs from the feisty blugrassy pop album "Taking the Long Way," the Chicks' first release since being trashed by country-music DJs and fans after mouthing off about President Bush. But I admit, I was fully caught up in the awards-winning frenzy when I clicked the "buy" button.

And you know what, after singing along to the album on my way to work this morning -- and arriving in a startlingly good mood -- I realized that sometimes following the crowd is a good thing.
