I happen to think Natalie Maines of The Dixie Chicks has one of the most glorious voices currently in music, so I am not the slightest bit surprised that the band killed Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” at a concert in London recently. I mean, no offense to Miley, who I happen to think really shows off her impressive vocal range on the song — look at me, talking like I’m Bette Midler and know shit about “vocal range” — but Natalie’s voice was made to sing this ballad, especially since she adds her own dose of country twang.

“People do look at it as an insult that I say I don’t listen to country music, which cracks me up. Music is a personal preference. Everyone’s free to connect and like whatever they want.”

–Natalie Maines, lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, tells Us Weekly that despite being a huge star in the genre, she doesn’t actually listen to country music anymore. “I definitely have a bad taste in my mouth about country radio,” she explained. “We did get supporters [after her anti-war comments in 2003], but as a whole, the country music industry did not support us. Award shows would laugh at our expense. It was fun to hate us.”

Maines is releasing a solo album, Mother, on May 7th, and even though the sound is reportedly much different than the twangy hits she recorded with the Dixie Chicks, I can’t wait to hear it. [Update: You’re in luck, Winona! NPR is streaming the whole album online, so you can listen to it for free!] [Us Weekly]
