7 babies, 13 grammys May 12, 2007Posted by jenniferlewk in Dixie Chix, motherhood, opting out.
One of my favorite themes of the Dixie Chick’s Shut up and Sing was how naturally the singers took to handling motherhood and their careers. Although it was obviously not as easy at it appeared on film, I think that it is important to note that the women did think of motherhood as just as fulfilling, if not more, than their careers as country singers. We saw their pregnancies, their husbands, their practicing with babies in hand…and I know that this post sounds very lovey-dovey, but I just really think it is amazing that these women are showing that you can have it all…that you may work yourself to the ground or need a substantial amount of help to have it all, but that in the end, it is possible. Here’s the link an ABC article about the Dixie Chicks and motherhood.
