Tribute to the American Ride
By Maddy B. Gray
What is it about country music that makes it so compatible with horse work?
Have I been brainstormed by American marketing?
Indoctrinated by so much stereotyping?
I must be a simple sucker for the combination of horses and cowboys (or, shall we say, men decked out like cowboys.…because really, how many country singers are horsemen, anyhow!?)
Most country songs tend to be nostalgic and sentimental. (Some go overboard...
What happens if you play a country record backwards? Your wife comes back. Your dog comes home. You get your house back…
I like country songs with a bit of humor, some wry comments, self-deprecation. The best country songs can be sentimental and insightful at the same time.
Listen closely, Toby Keith sounds pretty darn patriotic but he pokes fun and delivers a healthy dose of sarcasm, too.
Hope you like the video!
