Country Rap

I have a habit of spending some evenings browsing through the various music video channels. And I usually get a pretty broad range of music, going from the country channel, to MTV’s underground channel, to the “urban” channel to pop hits etc. A while back I caught the video below on the country music channel. I took notice because it seemed like an impossibility: a pop country song featuring rap. But, the truth is, it works pretty well.

Also interesting, the musician, Colt Ford (the fat guy), is actually a former pro golfer!

Of course, if we’re paying tribute to country/rap, we need a tip our hat to the innovator of the genre, Travis Shredd.

    I liked both of them videos. I’ve heard a few Rap Country things that were pretty good. I think I’ve seen that Colt Ford thing somewhere. I dunno.

    I just recorded a podcast episode that I feel pretty good about.

    You should have Colt Ford on your podcast.

    I’ll talk to him.

    My lap top just gave me a scare but it all worked out.

    Picked up “Electric Ladyland”. The Album, not the Studio. If I was gonna get a Studio it would be The Zebra Ranch.
