E Canada Now » Dixie Chicks Big Winners At The Grammys

"Country band The Dixie Chicks, who riled many fans with their early criticism of the war in Iraq, were lauded by their fellow musicians Sunday as they won five Grammy Awards, including the coveted song and record of the year prize for their defiant ballad Not Ready To Make Nice.
The female band dominated a night when the US music industry threw off its worries about plunging record sales to gather for its most prestigious awards show - the musical equivalent of the Oscars.
The opening of the show harked back to the heydays of rock as new- wave rockers The Police took the stage for only their second live public performance since they split in 1984.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we are The Police, and we’re back!” frontman Sting shouted before launching into a rocking version of the band’s first hit, Roxanne."
