The Nashville division of Warner Bros. will release Cowboy Troy’s first CD, ‘Loco Motive’, on Tuesday (May 17), and the “hick-hop” artist admitted to Howard Cohen of the Miami Herald it won’t be easy selling his new sound – a country and rap fusion that some critics jokingly call “Crap”. “To me, hick-hop is taking a rap lyric and putting together some sort of delivery using country instruments — fiddles, banjos, acoustic guitars, occasionally a rock guitar,” Troy said. “If given the opportunity to be heard on a large scale, it could do well. If I meet a lot of resistance in getting it played, then it may cause problems. I get a little concerned about things, not that I’m freaking out. I’m pumped about everything and looking forward to going out to the local store and buying a copy for myself.”
“Hick Hop” artist Cowboy Troy is out with the video to his debut solo single ‘I Play Chicken With The Train’, off the Victoria, Texas native’s album ‘Loco Motive’, released on Warner Bros. on May 17th. Watch it via YouTube below.
