Dixie Chick Natalie Maines won the award for the Big Quote Of 2003 at the VH1 Big In ’03 award show, taped Thursday (November 20) in Los Angeles, for her controversial anti-Bush comment made while in concert overseas in March. The singer told a London audience, “Just so you know, we’re ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas.”
Upon accepting her award, Maines said, “There’s an old Texas expression. If you don’t have anything nice to say, go to London and say it in front of 2,000 people.”
VH1 Big In ’03 will air on November 30 at 9 p.m. ET. The two-hour show will “celebrate, comment on, and otherwise skewer the biggest people, trends and moments of this year,” according to VH1.com.
