Quayde chats with Ross Cooper during WCG’s first annual Cotton Fest in Lubbock. We go from talking about his West Texas roots – rodeoing and playing music – to why he moved to Music City (attention bachelorette parties: Nashville is more than just Broadway). We discuss how riding in a band van is much like living in an unaired sitcom, complete with your stereotypical character list. Ross has a new record out, I Rode the Wild Horses. He cut it at The Casino with producer Eric Masse, whose resume includes work with Robert Ellis, Andrew Combs, Waylon Payne and Miranda Lambert. Ross was recently named one of Rolling Stone’s 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know… so go know him.
