Check Kansas City Country Kanye West

Every great artist and most of the horrible ones have some kind of "shtick" when starting out. This bit of cowtown tribute is better than most:

A Self-Proclaimed 'Country Kanye West,' This Kansas City Writer Honors Black Cowboys

Trae Q.L. Venerable is a lot of things: a horseman, a houndsman, a writer and an educator, for sure. But foremost, he's a real-life cowboy who doesn't fit the image found in most western movies or in country music.

Good - hopefully he'll emphasize the Kansas connections of Nat Love.

When the cowpoke with earrings headed West, everyone knew his destination was Brokeback Mountain!!!

Radish was surprised when the black guy doing drywall, mudding and painting at the hallways at work had his radio playing country music the whole time. You really don’t know what people are into and can be surprised...
