About the Movie

SHUT UP AND SING follows the Dixie Chicks, an extremely successful all-woman Texas-based country music trio, over a three year period of intense public scrutiny, fan backlash, physical threats, and pressure from both corporate and conservative political elements in the United States after lead singer Natalie Maines publicly criticised then President George W. Bush during a live 2003 concert in London as part of their Top of the World Tour. This film is a fascinating and powerful look at the intersection of commerce, celebrity, and controversy.

Absolutely brilliant. A shame, really, what happened to them. Wish they'd come back. My favorite movie ever...


The story, the music, the Chicks. Great!

Great Documentary

Very well put together and interesting. A good testiment to the devisive nature of politics today and the power of mass media and corporations. I'm not a big country music fan (though familiar with the Dixie Chicks) nor documentary fan ... but this one had me riveted and even drove me to tear-up at one point.
