Dixie Chicks - I Can Love You Better

I Can Love You Better was the first official single from the Dixie Chicks' fourth studio album Wide Open Spaces. Most people assume that Wide Open Spaces was the Chicks first album. Even though it was their fourth, it was their first album with Natalie Maines as the lead vocalist.

I Can Love You Better went all the way to #7 on the Billboard Hot Country charts, and it was the beginning of a string of top ten hits for the Dixie Chicks until ten days before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, when Natalie said "We don't want this war, this violence; and, we're ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas" while they were on tour in Europe.

That one statement offended more people than they could have ever imagined. They were basically banned from almost every country music station, and only their 2006 song Not Ready To Make Nice made it into the country top 40, peaking at #36. Since the statement, they've had pretty good success on the pop charts, but they're still non-existent on the country scene.
