When you think country/western music, you think cowboy hats, rodeo, and steel guitar. And that’s exactly what you’ll find when you listen to former professional bareback rider Ross Cooper’s latest release. “I Rode the Wild Horses” tells the story of the hard pursuit for 8 seconds and the life on the road that accompanies the chase. If you’re thinking this song sounds authentic, then you would be correct. The autobiographical song comes from a man who actually lived his life as a cowboy and didn’t just sing about being one. With a musical career that started with bronc riding, it’s no wonder that Ross Cooper is described as being similar to the great country music cowboy himself, Chris Ledoux.
In the music video that accompanies the song, “I Rode the Wild Horses”, you can catch a glimpse of the cowboy lifestyle.
So if you’re looking for some authenticity and traditionalism in country music, you’re at the right place.
