TSOM25: So…About Cowboy Troy


Tonight we take a trip into the weird musical universe where Cowboy Troy exists. If you’re not familiar with the act that is Cowboy Troy, he helped pioneer the bizarre and unnecessary genre “hick hop” or country rap. Bravely breaking down evident racial lines, Cowboy Troy was destined to be remembered alongside other legendary musicians to leap over prejudice and racial divide like Charley Pride, Kid Rock, Vanilla Ice, Prince, and Elvis. However, the second he hit the studio, that dream was crushed. We discuss his career work and his standing legacy amongst the world’s worst music.
