When you're six feet, five inches tall you stand out. Add a cowboy hat and you stand out even more. Then, make the subject from Texas with darker than average skin and there's no question that Cowboy Troy isn't exactly an average guy. Throw in the fact that his debut release "Loco Mo-tive" debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country album chart followed by his second successful release "Black In The Saddle" and one can quickly see that his convergence of country, rap and rock that Troy dubbed "hick-hop," has become a new genre. Anyone who's pegged him in either the novelty or strictly rap category may get a big surprise with "Demolition Mission: Studio Blue Sessions."
Inspite of very little radio support for his music the fan base continues to grow and the shows continue to sell out proving that people still want a piece of the personality that they have come to know through his music and hosting Nashville Star to gracing the pages of People, Rolling Stone, Time, and USA Today to the Tonight Show, Good Morning America, Larry King Live, and the list goes on.
Troy enjoys pushing the envelope and surprising his fans. He feels that sometimes music has to challenge and make people listen as well as make them feel good or want to dance - this album does all three!
Cowboy Troy is currently on tour, and just completed a national tour with Big & Rich.
