(KP International) Three years after having their career derailed, Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines remains defiant.

"What a dumbf---," says Maines of US President George W Bush during a scene from Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing.

The documentary, which debuted this week at the Toronto International Film Festival, follows the virulent fallout after Maines told an English audience that she was ashamed that Bush was from Texas.

Maines told Fox News that she never considered asking the filmmakers to edit her latest statement from the piece. "Nope, we never would have done that," she said. Pegged for an October release, it is already receiving Oscar buzz.
