Country Girls and Boys

Are you a Country Girl or for that matter a Country Boy?

Carrie came out of American Idol, Shania, her father was a Ojibway Indian came from Canada and Miley Cirus is the daughter of Country superstar Billy Ray Cirus (those old enough might remember his song Achy Breaky Heart What do they have in common?

Dixie Chicks play Country to Country at the O2
