Young moved to California in the mid-60s, where he formed the short-lived band Buffalo Springfield, before settling into a solo and group career with Crazy Horse and David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. With songs, such as "Ohio," "Southern Man" and "Alabama," Young proves that, although he may be Canadian, American culture informs many of his lyrics. In a 2005 interview with Time magazine, Young said, "I guess I could be a dual citizen, but if I ever had to give up my Canadian citizenship to become American, I wouldn't do it, because I wouldn't want to hurt Canada. I love Canada. As I get older, more and more I start singing about Canada."
