If you’ve been following along the Beyoncé/Country Music thing, I recommend reading this article:

Vason named the rodeo in honor of Bill Pickett, a Texas native of Black and Cherokee descent who invented “bulldogging,” now known as steer wrestling, where he wrestled a steer to the ground.

I can’t help thinking that a lot of the people that have no idea about the culture they hold so dear —the origins and who actually built much of it— would lose their shit if they ever found out how popular Country Music is in Saint Lucia.
