Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Cowboy Troy rode in on a horse of a different color thanks to Big & Rich and their Nashville-based genrebusting Muzik Mafia. Creating a new cultural phenomenon and genre all his own hick-hop black Country rapper Cowboy Troy made his major-label debut in 2005 with Loco Motive, which hit #2 Country. Now, with his follow-up album, Cowboy Troy is Black In The Saddle again.

Amazon.com

As co-host of CMT's Nashville Star, Troy Coleman might have been expected to stick to the amiable hick-hop novelty of his 2005 debut, Loco Motive. Instead, his sophomore effort rocks harder than expected--think heavy-metal guitars--and emphasizes the "black" of the title. While hammy barnyard tunes ("Hick Chick" and a dance mix of "I Play Chicken with the Train") raise their feathered heads, Cowboy brings along Angela Hacker, J. Money, and M. Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold to balance the MuzikMafia shtick. "The Black Buffalo comin' out the box," he warns in "How Can You Hate Me?," a song that seethes with anger: "Some of y'all sayin' Troy ain't nothing but a Sambo." No more, big guy. No more. --Alanna Nash

I am actually SHOCKED how much I love this record!!!! Most will probably tell me I should be ashamed of myself, but in reality, THIS is the record that Big & Rich should have released instead of the enjoyable but something's missing "Between Raising Hell & Amazing Grace"...it's much better, catchier and more exciting, edgier throughout.

If anything, it's like a much better, non-Republican, Kid Rock. Troy doesn't sound like he's trying too hard here, the songs are better-written, they're much more cohesive, and there's no sense of novelty like "Loco Motive" had. The blend of hard rock, old school hiphop, alt-country, and dance rhythms works really well all over "Black In The Saddle", a really seamless blend...Troy and John Rich finally figured it out...it's equal to Big & Rich's "Horse Of A Different Colour", Troy's version of it...and this album proves that John Rich (he goes under the pseudonym "J.Money" here) is capable of matching it and maybe even surpassing it...BRHAAG is not it..."Black In The Saddle" is equal to that vision.

I love the references to rock bands like Guns & Roses and mosh pits, goood times and "Hick Chicks, Dixie Divas and you Southern Belles"...and the "Barn Dance Remix" of "I Play Chicken With The Train" is better than the original, the novelty aspect gone, replaced by a cohesive vision of rock, dance, hiphop and country.

I like I like...and most mainstream country people would probably hate this like poison. I wonder who this should be aimed towards??? The dance clubs??? The modern rock crowd??? Rappers, maybe, but they're too closed-minded. Maybe those who dug Run DMC, Beastie Boys, old school rap, Ice-T collaborating with Body Count???

I don't know, but it doesn't matter, it's a great record that will go underappreciated and unnoticed...too bad really...Cowboy TRoy's really good after all...even his inbetween single "Hook Em Horns" was great too...

5.0 out of 5 stars Cowboy Troy December 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is what hick hop is all about. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. This is my favourite Cowboy Troy album, and has even managed to convert a few people who had never heard of hick hop, to like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Cowboy Troy September 15, 2007
By B. York
Format:Audio CD
I am so excited my husband, at this minute, is out trying to find Cowboy Troy's CD for me. I watched "Hick Chicks" on CMT today and knew I had to get his CD. Problem is "Best Buy" doesn't have the common sense to carry his CD's. (He just got home and found it at Target!)

I have to question those that gave Cowboy Troy negative reviews. Is it because a black man and is crossing the "lines" going country, crossing the lines? Cowboy Troy is part of the Muzik Mafia. "Music without prejudice". Are those that gave him negative reviews prejudiced? I hope not. He is an aweome artist with a great voice that isn't afraid to "cross the line." Are you all willing to do the same?

I am, according, to some of my friends, from all different different races, the "Whitest white girl they've ever met." Many of my best friends are from all different races. Are we not beyond that? I'm glad my friends don't see color but see me as who I am.

Cowboy Troy knows he's on his own. He is still not afraid of being who he is and I applaud him for that. Could you all stand on your own knowing the cards are against you and still stand up for yourself. I don't think so.

So, for those that want to dog him for the wrong reasons... I feel sorry for you because you have to live with yourselves 24/7 and I'm glad you are not part of my life.

Cowboy Troy and the rest of the Muzik Mafia will always be my fans. Put down the barriers and listen to the music without prejudice. That's all they're asking.

Signed,

A music lover without predudice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deffinately BACK IN THE SADDLE October 9, 2007
By Melzy
Format:Audio CD
Cowboy Troy is deffinately back int he saddle with his new album. His debut was good, but he deffinately has found his sound with this new album.

The whole album is good. There is not one song that I do not love. This album is edgier and has you singing along. I'd have to say my favorite song, if I had to pick one, on this album is "How Can You Hate Me." I love the guitar, and the melodic sound of this song. It's meaningful, yet rocks with the best of them.

If you're a traditionalist when it comes to country, then this is not for you, but if you think outside the box and love music for the sake of loving music. You'll love this album.

1.0 out of 5 stars I tried CT twice. Never again April 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I tried so hard to like this album. I really tried. I love "urban country" or "hick hop" or country rap, however you want to call it. So I wanted to like this major-label artist. This artist who is one of the rare African-American artists in country music. I tried... But after hating that first album of his, I decided I'd give this one a chance. One last chance. UGH! I'm sure he's a nice guy and I'd love to meet him in person, but I can't subject myself to this horrible music anymore. This guy is wildly untalented and apparently nothing more than a novelty act. His country themes seem forced and his delivery is really clumsy.

If you're looking for country rap, check out Colt Ford, The LACs, Mikel Knight and even Nappy Roots. But don't do this. I will not be giving CT anymore chances.
