Marshall Tucker Band Plan Special Gig

The Marshall Tucker Band plan to play a May 1 concert organized as an alternative to the Dixie Chicks, who will be opening their United States tour at the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville that day.
Radio talk show host Mike Gallagher proposed the concert as a way for fans to protest remarks that Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines made about President Bush during the European leg of the trio's tour.
"Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas," Maines told a London audience last month. The singer since has apologized, but the anti-Chicks sentiment has spread rapidly.
The South Carolina House of Representatives even got involved in the fracas by adopting a resolution asking the band to play a free concert for the troops and their families as a way of apologizing.
Gallagher says people attending his concert who have Dixie Chicks tickets will sit in a special VIP section and attend a VIP reception.
All proceeds from the Marshall Tucker Band concert will buy food for military families and military communities, he said. SPARTANBURG, S.C.(AP)
