The term “country rap” has started to take its run in mainstream country formats. With the recent success of country artist Colt Ford and The Lacs , along with current “rap style” hits by country mega stars Jason Aldean (“Dirt Road Anthem”), Toby Keith (“Red Solo Cup”) and Tim McGraw (“Truck Yeah”), one would think that this is a new concept. But Bubba Sparxxx has been doing it for years.
If you are a true music historian, you would recall that this movement actual began in 2001 with the release of Bubba Sparxxx’s debut album Dark Days, Bright Nights. The video for the first single, “Ugly,” featured Bubba and pals in the mud with pigs, on tractors and performing in front of a house covered with bug lights. If that’s not the epitome of country, then nothing is.
The platinum certified Dark Days, Bright Nights debuted on Interscope Records in October 2001 and was produced by superstar producers Timbaland and Organized Noize. It was followed-up by the critically acclaimed 2003 release, Deliverance.
