Australian country music has its own roots and culture, and that necessarily diverges from a lot of what’s on offer from the USA. There are influences, of course, but there are some elements of country music that we just don’t have. One of those is a genuine Southern twang – and I confess to being partial to that. The new single ‘Preachin’ to the Choir’ by Nashville residents A Thousand Horses has that twang at the forefront of a country rock sound with a nicely laid-back beat and a mightily impressive backing choir (appropriately enough). It’s their first single since their 2015 album SOUTHERNALITY.
