It’s Cowboy Troy’s ‘I Play Chicken With the Train’ Video!
This was groundbreaking for country music in 2005 -- for more than one reason. Before Cowboy Troy, country fans had universally rejected country-rap marriages, and there hadn't been more than a handful of successful African American country singers. CMT picked up the 'I Play Chicken With the Train' video, and while the song wasn't at radio, it successfully paved the way for future "hick-hop" songs.
The music video features Big and Rich, who also had a heavy hand in producing and promoting 'Loco Motive,' Troy's 2005 album. Each song features a collaborator, a formula Colt Ford has been successful with in recent years. In 2012, Cowboy Troy sang this song during the season finale of 'Dancing With the Stars' on ABC. Donald Driver did his freestyle dance during the live performance.
