LAUNCH Radio Networks
The Dixie Chicks endorsement deal with Lipton may be in jeopardy. According to the New York Post, a commercial that the Chicks shot for Lipton Brisk Iced Tea may never materialize.
The commercial was shot before lead singer Natalie Maines' told a London crowd back in March that she was ashamed President Bush was from her home state of Texas. Executives for Lipton's parent company, Pepsi, reportedly fear a Dixie Chicks endorsement right now, thinking it might actually hurt sales. They're debating whether or not to air the spot.
After Maines' comment, radio stations across the country banned the trio's music and their new album, Home. Sales have declined by 40 percent.
The Chicks' upcoming Top of The World tour is sponsored by Lipton.
Looks like their career is slowly going down the toilet. I haven't even heard that 'Mirror in the Sky' song on my radio station in quite some time.
