Natalie Maines Net Worth
Natalie Maines net worth: Natalie Maines is an American singer/songwriter who has a net worth of $45 million. Natalie Maines is probably most famous for being a member of the country music group, The Dixie Chicks. In addition to her net worth, she's accumulated millions of fans while remaining unafraid to speak her mind on matters regarding politics, even in the insular and often oppressive world of country music. For example, in 2003, shortly after the United States invasion of Iraq, Maines had this to say during a concert in London: "Just so you know, we're on the good side with y'all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas." This statement, for whatever reason, was considered highly inflammatory and led to many boycotts of The Dixie Chicks on the part of a largely conservative country music audience. The Dixie Chicks persevered, however, continuing to release music and tour thanks to a devoted audience. The controversy continues to hound them, however, and they've never really captured the success that they enjoyed prior to the incident. There's even been a documentary about the controversy, appropriately titled Shut Up and Sing. Whatever comes next for Natalie Maines, it's a safe bet that she'll continue to be an outspoken crusader for justice, no matter the consequences.
