Country rap is a subgenre of popular music blending country music with hip hop music-style rapping, also known as hick-hop or rural rap.
Country rap began to form as a genre when Bubba Sparxxx and producer Shannon "Fat Shan" Houchins created Sparxxx's 2001 debut album "Dark Days, Bright Nights" as an independent release which was later re-released on Interscope Records. The trend continued in 2005 when country artists Big & Rich introduced Cowboy Troy to the country world via 2005's "Loco Motive" released on Warner Brothers. Coming off the success of Bubba Sparxxx's platinum album debut, Houchins soon after created Average Joes Entertainment with country rapper Colt Ford. This was the beginning of country rap taking its place as a real and separate genre while at the same time influencing mainstream country.Colt Ford has sold over 1.5 million albums including 3 that have landed in the top 10 of Billboard's Country Music chart. Ford's 2012 "Declaration Of Independence" debuted at #1 proving that country rap is a true genre and spawning a slew of new artists. The Lacs and Lenny Cooper have both sold well. The Lacs' third album "Keep It Redneck" debuted #3 on Billboard's Country Chart in August 2013 proving further country rap's popularity as a new genre.
Other artists of this genre include Moonshine Bandits, Jawga Boyz, Big Smo, Demun Jones, Charlie Farley, Cap Bailey, Moccasin Creek, Twang & Round, Bottleneck, Redneck Social Club, Sarah Ross, J Rosevelt, Redneck Souljers, among others.
Country tradionalists Toby Keith, Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton have since adapted a country rap style in recent years.
Music journalist Chuck Eddy, in The Accidental Evolution of Rock 'n' Roll, traces the genre's roots back to Woody Guthrie.
Country music in the way of talking blues style no doubt has been a huge influence of Rap since the 70s, by example "Talkin Blues" performed by Woody Guthrie (1947) and the famous 1961 hit "Big Bad John" performed by Jimmy Dean. C
