Amazon.com's Top 18 Best Selling Products of 2006
Maybe it wasn't cool in the South to go to the record store to get the new Dixie Chicks cd, but on the internet nobody can judge you. The Chicks were boycotted by Country radio and their fans said that they shouldn't have said what they said about President Bush, but when it came down to picking up their new cd, the people let their fingers do the buying. And if you ask us, they bought a wonderful cd. (It was also the website's Most Wished-For CD)
