In the late summer of 2015 I met Kees. He intrigued me with his blue eyes, cowboy style and beautiful white American oldtimer. Even though he’s never been to the USA before and can’t ride a horse or roundup cattle, Kees has something special to him, something so pure and free. He has chosen his own way of life, more in contact with nature and with a passion for the old country and western scene. This tough cowboy with a soft heart identifies himself with the words of Johnny Cash: “People call me wild. Not really though, I’m not. I guess I’ve never been normal, not what you call Establishment. I’m country.”
