This week in Conversations, Stephanie Zacharek talks to Barbara Kopple, director of the Dixie Chicks documentary "Shut Up and Sing." (Read the Q&A here.) Kopple credits the Chicks with teaching her some valuable lessons about friendship:

What did you learn personally from spending so much time with the Dixie Chicks?

Here are these women who have balanced so much. They're mothers. They have seven children between them. They're wives. The bond that they have between them has deeply affected my life, as I never thought it would. I never thought I'd walk away from an experience with the Dixie Chicks saying, "They have inspired me, and they have taught me what friendship is about."
