Not Quite My Grandfather's Story, but Close Enough (Plus, Tchaikovsky)

The funny thing here is that, although I think country music like this best tells the story of his life, my grandfather was never really a country music fan. While he didn't go to college and lived much of his life out in the sticks, he mostly listened to classical music. He'd probably rather I play Schubert or Tchaikovsky in his honor. Here's something he might have enjoyed more than the Alan Jackson I've been playing.

(The story the 1812 Overture tells is of the Russian defense against Napolean's invasion, an interesting read in its own right.)
