The Dixie Chicks are the subject of this documentary that lays out what happened after lead singer Natalie Maines said during a 2003 London concert, "Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas," because of her disagreement with the administration's desire to get the U.S. involved in a war in Iraq. Also with Martie Maguire, Emily Robison and Simon Renshaw. Directed by Barbara Kopple & Cecilia Peck. [1:39]
