Ok, now it's my first post (and perhaps my only one ever) in the Music forum. Possibly because I listen to a lot of music that is not popular..

But anyway - Cowboy Troy - anyone listen to him? I cause Cowboy Troy singing with Big and Rich on Las Vegas last night and was absolutely facinated at the sound of a country rapper.

I mean, as a rule, beyong Johnny Cash and Earl and Scruggs "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", I normally hate country music.

But this was, how do I say it? Fantastic.

...Cowboy Troy is absolutely brilliant. If rap music was this easy to listen to, this fun, and this...I don't know...(would accessible be a good word to describe it..?)I'd give it another chance.

But yeah, Cowboy Troy's music is really off the hook. I can't get enough of his stuff. In fact, Big & Rich is really fun, as well.

Let's be clear about this. Whatever Cowboy Troy is doing (his term is "hick-hop"), it is certainly not country music. When I heard "I Play Chicken With the Train" on my local country station, I was confused as to their rationale for playing it. Dance music, hip-hop, sure. Unless he's got a heart-wrenching ballad somewhere on Loco Motion, I can't hear anything country about him.

I have no doubt the guy is talented, though. His interlude on "Rollin(The Ballad of Big & Rich)" is fun to listen to. But he'll be no more than a Trivial Pursuit answer within a couple of years.

Amen, with the caveat that I still don't like (The W) Big & Rich. I just can't see Cowboy Troy as anything more than a passing fad.

I hope he sticks around for a long time. CBT's album is more original than most of the crap Toby Keith's put out in the past three years.

I can only say I like it. "I Play Chicken With the Train" is doing nothing but running around in my head right now.

Maybe a fad (so was The Knack - but I still like "My Sharona"

He's doing something different - and if there's a genre of music that needs something different, it's modern country music. I could give a damn if he sustains lasting popularity - one look at those iTunes Top Download posts should be enough to make you realize that popularity and quality are almost diametrically opposed - his is the first country album I've even considered buying from someone under 60 ever.

I almost certain that everyone is judging him on his I PLAY CHICKEN WITH THE TRAIN song, but there's another track that deserves consideration...it's a track called IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LOVE ME. That track really shows off his range and his tempo: It's easily the best track on Locomotive.
