Grammy Sweep by Dixie Chicks Is Seen as a Vindication? Country Broadcasters call the Recording Academy ‘Out-of-Touch’.

The Dixie Chicks’ big win at the Grammy Awards exposed ideological tensions between the music industry’s Nashville establishment and the members of the Recording Academy.

Although we don’t know, many insiders have some serious doubts about this years Grammys. Even though the Dixie Chicks album “Taking the Long Way Home” sold 1.9 million copies, it still fell short compared with albums by Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts which were supported by country radio.

As for as the Grammy voters were concerned, the Dixie Chicks “made a great album this year, and their music and their commentary resonated with our membership, as it did with the entire nation,� said Neil Portnow, president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

But……

Mr. Ayeroff, who founded the voter-registration group Rock the Vote, said a man sitting behind him in the Grammy audience snickered each time the Dixie Chicks received another trophy.

And………

Even though the Dixie Chicks owned the Grammys, it still wont convince Nashville. Country radio still won’t make nice with the chicks.

“Most country stations aren’t playing the Chicks, and they aren’t going to start now,” said Jim Jacobs, owner of WTDR-FM, a country radio station in Talladega, Ala.

Country broadcasters said that the group’s five Grammys show how out of touch the Recording Academy is from the average country fan.
