Cowboy Troy (born Troy Coleman, 18 December 1970 in Victoria, Texas) is an African-American country singer. He graduated from Skyline High School in the Dallas Independent School District. Subsequently, he completed a bachelor's degree in psychology at The University of Texas. Prior to his career as a singer, he worked as the manager of a Dallas Foot Locker.
Cowboy Troy began performing in 1989 and developed a style he calls "hick-hop," which blends various country, rock, rap and tejano influences. He often raps in Spanish as well as English. He has released three independent albums (production label: Maximedia Production Group; distribution label: Bull Rush Recordings): Hick-Hop Hysteria - EP (2001), Beginner's Luck (2002) and Vintage (2003). Starting in 2002, three songs were available as free downloads from amazon.com: "Texas" from Hick-Hop Hysteria, "Bus Driver" and "Tae Kwon Flo" from Beginner's Luck.
As of August 28, 2005, "Texas" was #2 on Amazon's Funk & Rap Rock chart, #1 on their Experimental Rap chart, and #1125 overall. The other downloads have been discontinued. Cowboy Troy joined the informal music group, MuzikMafia, in 2004. He appeared on Big & Rich's first album, Horse of a Different Color, rapping the fourth verse to the first track, "Rollin' (The Ballad of Big and Rich)." As a backup vocalist for Big & Rich, Troy toured with Tim McGraw and provided a rap track to McGraw's ballad "She's My Kind of Rain." Cowboy Troy released his first major-label solo album, Loco Motive, (production label: RAYBAW records; distribution label: Warner Music Group) on May 17, 2005. ...show less
