Singer/songwriter/member of the country music group The Dixie Chicks Natalie Maines has a net worth of $40 million. As well as her net worth, she is accumulated millions of fans while staying unafraid to speak her head on issues regarding politics, even in the insular and generally oppressive world of country music. As an example, in 2003, soon after the United States invasion of Iraq, Maines had this to say during a concert in London: “Just so you know, we are to the great side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we are ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas.”
Natalie Maines Net Worth $40 Million Dollars
This statement, for some reason, was considered highly inflammatory and led to many boycotts of The Dixie Chicks to the section of a mainly conservative country music audience. The Dixie Chicks persevered, however, continuing to release music and tour thanks to your faithful audience. The controversy continues to hound them, yet, and they’ve never actually captured the success which they enjoyed before the episode. There is even been a documentary concerning the controversy, suitably titled Shut Up and Sing. Whatever comes next for Natalie Maines, it’s a safe bet that she’ll continue in order to be outspoken crusader for justice, no matter the consequences.

[a controversial statement in Lubbock, Texas on March 10, 2003, as one of the 'Dixie Chicks'] 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.
[ on her role as an activist, 2013]. I'm not out looking for a cause. They sort of find me, or find my heart. But sure, there's always time for that. My big mouth can talk all the time.
