A haunting, slow-burning blast of country-western bravado, “I Rode the Wild Horses” might’ve found its way onto the soundtrack for a Cormac McCarthy film if it weren’t already telling the true story of Ross Cooper’s days as a rodeo king.

The wistful lyrics will inspire you, just as Cooper intended.
— Cowboys & Indians Magazine
A lot of country and Americana artists like to write tunes about riding and wrangling, but only a handful of them have actually done it….Ross Cooper is one of those artists.
— American Songwriter
Sounds Like: The gritty rodeo songs of Ryan Bingham with the garage rock guitar licks of Ryan Adams
— Wide Open Country
Shimmering pedal steel, rocking guitar riffs, soulful keys, and beautiful harmonies...
— No Depression
The kind of background that would make country’s authenticity police drool

Ross Cooper is the rare country musician who has actually lived the life of a cowboy. The former professional bareback rider was still bustin' broncs when his music career began. Though a knee injury sidelined his rodeo career, Cooper drives a band like he's still wearing spurs and holding on for eight. His new album, I Rode The Wild Horses, pushes country music way past traditional territory just for the rush. It's the new Nashville sound: glimmering pedal steel, rollicking & rocking telecaster riffs, soulful keys, and gorgeous harmonies.
