An admission: I do like country music

I'm a hussar, I'm a Hun, I'm a wretched Englishman
Routing Bonaparte at Waterloo
I'm a dragoon on a dun, I'm a Cossack on the run
I'm a horse soldier, timeless, through and through

It started with Kathleen Edwards' Asking For Flowers. Joel Plaskett's latest with Drifter's Raus and Pine, Pine, Pine confirmed my suspicions, and I gave in with Corb Lund's Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier! and its sublime history lessons.

I can't discriminate no more, Ma. I loves me a nice guitar ditty with a colourful story.
