“A real asshole did something real bad this week and made us not ready to make nice,” Natalie Maines told the crowd at Madison Square Garden. “But we cannot let the hatred and the anger win out.”

“We got to put positivity out there in the universe to counterbalance all the crazy nut jobs.”

Though the band has been covering Patty Griffin’s song “Don’t Let Me Die in Florida” on their tour, they skipped it Monday night for obvious reasons.

Instead, they finished the concert with Ben Harper’s song “Better Way” while a rainbow heart was displayed on the screen behind the three women.

In 2003, the group faced backlash when Maines said she was “ashamed” that then-president George Bush was from Texas.
