Cowboy Troy was hick-hop country when hick-hop country wasn’t cool. With his debut album Loco Motive in 2005, he set the curve years before there was Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line. His music dared to bridge the gap between tradition and the new wave, and it still does. At the time, he landed on the tail end of the pop-country vibrance of the ’90s, headed by Garth Brooks and Shania Twain, and this particular brand of country music wasn’t as accepted as it is in 2014.
On his brand new record, appropriately titled The Kind Of Clubs, he reaffirms all the things he already knew about himself and the world, but sheds light on where country could go in the future. “I like to make music that is dance-oriented but from a country music fan’s perspective. That’s how see the process for making this record,” he shares exclusively to NashvilleGab.
