Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks, taken by me last October in Vancouver.
"If you don’t like who I am, there’s really nothing I can do about that. I’m not gonna change for anybody because I know who I am. And I like who I am."

The Dixie Chicks
It’s a sad, sad story when a mother will teach her daughter that she oughta hate a perfect stranger, and how in the world can the words that I said send somebody so over the edge that they’d write me a letter sayin’ that I better shut up and sing or my life will be over? I’m not ready to make nice. I’m not ready to back down. I’m still mad as hell and I don’t have time to go ‘round and ‘round and ‘round. It’s too late to make it right. I probably wouldn’t if I could.

The album went on to sell more than 4 500 000 copies and won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album and Album of the Year in 2007.
