Hey! First of all, I want to thank you for visiting my page and getting to know me a little bit. You won’t be sorry. I’m Cowboy Troy. I was born right here in Casper, Wyoming, and brought up in the shadow of the Teapot Dome in the light crude producing region known as the Salt Creek Oilfields. I like to think that I am Wyoming. I love country music and its roots. I love performing as well. I have a degree in theatre and have been performing on various Casper stages for over twenty years. I also am an accomplished drummer and have played music all over the region for the same amount of time. My other hobbies include stand-up comedy, singing, karate, annoying people, and Legos. I hope these so called “talents” help draw you in, and make your My Country listening experience one that you won’t ever forget. Thanks for listening!

Man Dies Leaving $7 Million in Gold Behind in His House

Discovering Yellowstone National Park For The First Time [GALLERY]
I think it was an old slogan for Heinz Ketchup or something like that, where I first remember hearing 'Good Things Come to Those who Wait.' Well, if that truly is the case, both Yellowstone National Park and I have benefited tremendously from my most recent trip. That's because both of us have waited it out patiently for the last 42 years for me to make my first foray into "Geyserland."
