The Russian Invasion



If there were a handbook on “How to Create an American Country Music Sensation,” you can be sure there would not be a chapter in it on recruiting musicians from Russia. It seems obvious: if you want to harvest kiwis, go to New Zealand, not Norway; if you want to find country musicians, go to Nashville, not Russia.

Thankfully, there are people who ignore the obvious.

Like Ray Johnson.
