Dixie Chicks News
1. Steve Holstein's Interprep passes along the word that Sunday's edition of the Dallas Morning News reported the DIXIE CHICKS offered a $1 million donation to the American Red Cross back in 2003 in exchange for backing their Top of the World tour. A spokeswoman for the Red Cross says the organization had to decline because it would have violated two of the main principals the organization was founded on: impartiality and neutrality. The spokeswoman added that if the trio would like to make an unconditional donation the organization would gladly accept it. Lead singer Natalie Maines had claimed the Red Cross was simply rejecting the Chicks' donation because of the London incident.
