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.

See what happens when you Google the word "FAILURE".

What fun!

At least two Canadian stations will be airing the complete song for an hour straight in protest. It's clear in context of the song that they're presenting the narrator character as closeminded, if not bigoted.
