Natalie Maines has since become a regular on the Stern Show, but that wasn't the case on this day in 2006 when the Dixie Chicks visited for the first time. Howard talked to them about their battles with country music fans after their comments about George Bush, apologized for initially being against them, and we learned what a giant superfan Natalie Maines is.
