Knowing you have the leave a relationship, but still wishing the other “well and happiness, all the sparkle and shine.” Ready to “move on down the line” it will all be okay.
“‘Down the Line’ was inspired by personal experience,” explains Cowboy Troy. “Essentially it’s about the disappointment of being willing to commit to a new relationship and realizing she wasn’t ready. It’s about realizing that feelings don’t make up for facts and even though two people really care for one another, they may not be best suited for each other. It’s about wishing for the other person’s happiness, even though they haven’t found it with you.”
Originally from Texas, Cowboy Troy started his career in 2004 with his own unique sound he likes to call “hick-hop.” He became good friends with John Rich of Big & Rich back in 1993 and kept in touch. In 2004, Cowboy Troy performed “Rollin’ (The Ballad of Big & Rich)” with Big & Rich at the Country Music Association Awards which made Troy only the second Black artist to take the stage.
Troy’s association with Big & Rich aided in exploding his career. He landed his own record deal with Warner Bros. Nashville and quickly began working on his debut with Big & Rich as producers. In 2005, his most streamed song “I Play Chicken with the Train” was released. His career has only continued to grow to include Billboard chart-topping albums, his own Hick-Hop Kitchen brand and more – and he is no where near done.
