A Beautiful Trooper - James Blunt

Did you know ‘You’re Beautiful’ singer James Blunt was in the British army before he started his musical career? Well, it’s true. The British singer/songwriter was an officer in the Life Guards, a Calvary in the British army. In an interview with the BBC, Blunt proudly points out that he prevented WW3.

He describes a particular time, when he refused an order to go against the Russians in Kosovo.

It was in 2002, when Blunt left his army career behind him to pursue a musical career instead. Back To Bedlham, his debut album was released in 2003, upon release the album later, became the biggest selling UK album in 2009.

In a recent interview with Celebrity Mania, Blunt shows no regret of leaving the army. He’s glad to put it behind him, simply because he doesn’t agree with the British military’s involvement with Afghanistan.

James Blunt recently released his latest album ‘Some Kind Of Trouble’ earlier this month. So if you’re a James Blunt fan then what are you waiting for? Grab this album at a store near you, or as always you can download directly from the iTunes store.
