I always thought Roddy was the Country fan in The Specials.
On Horace's facebook page there's an interesting photo of H.P. in a Country & Western style outfit. He's been moonlighting with a band called Honky Tonk Rose. Horace once told me he was a big fan of Steve Earl. Are there any Country fans on here?

I love the Steve Earl song My Old Friend The Blues (made famous by The Proclaimers). I also love Dolly Parton's "I will always love you", "Sweet Dreams" and "Crazy" by Patsy Cline, and a few dozen tracks by Johnny Cash.
This Costello album of Country covers also had it's moments...

I'm a fan of old Country. People like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams. Johnny Cash also did some great Country, as did Willie Nelson. Of the 'new' bunch Steve Earl is the only one I would consider worth a mention.
