Albany-  The Dixie Chicks may have been the big winners last night at the Grammys, but it won't help them get any more play on a south Georgia country radio station. The Dixie Chicks won five Grammys for their album, "Taking the Long Way." That doesn't mean B-100 will be playing any of their songs.

Kurt Baker said B-100 never refused to play the Chicks, but listeners haven't requested them, in the past and even with their Grammy win he doesn't expect that to change. The Clear Channel Supervisor of Programming, Clay Hunnicutt said the decision on whether to play the group is a local decision.

The Dixie Chicks fell out of favor with many fans in 2003 for derogatory comments made by lead singer Natalie Maines about the war and President George Bush.
