"I'd heard all the stories about Louis Armstrong recording with Jimmy Rodgers, and Charlie Parker playing Hank Williams tunes on Manhattan jukeboxes as he was revolutionizing jazz. But, mutual admiration aside, encounters between bebop pioneers and Western swingers were few, and recordings even fewer. For awhile, I'd wondered what would happen if...

Then Cow Bop got started, I rode my horse over to the Western songbook, and brought my bebop sensibilities along. Now it’s taken me hostage. This musical adventure promised—promised!—to let me go after just one album. Then came a tour. Then another tour. Then another album. With the debut of Too Hick for the Room, I officially give up trying to escape. Cow Bop’s a band, a style, a day on the range, respect for my Texas roots. I’d say it’s running away with me, but the truth is, we’re running away together, and having big fun doing it!”

Bruce Forman, the Cow Bop foreman
