    Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame inductee (2005)
    His trademark during his early years was riding a mechanical bull between songs.
    He originally refused recording contracts, citing he would lose his independence and control over his albums.
    He received national exposure when he was referenced in the Garth Brooks song 'Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old).
    Following his mainstream success, he sold out by recording cover songs.
    He claimed that he stopped recording original materials because he was tired of trying to make them appeal to a broader audience.
    The majority of his earlier albums are extremely difficult to find.
    He took an interest in rodeo competition and was a rodeo champion throughout his high school years.
    He originally began a music career to help finance the costs for his cross-country travel expenses.
    He recorded his earliest albums in a friend's basement.
    After his rodeo career ended as a result of injuries, he began a full-time music career.
    He successfully sold 250,000 albums despite the fact he had little marketing or media exposure.
    After gaining national exposure from Garth Brooks, he returned the favor by asking the latter to record the duet 'Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy?' with him.
    When his health began failing and doctors told him he needed a liver transplant, Garth Brooks offered to donate part of his liver to him, but it turned out to be an incompatible match.
    He was posthumously inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame (2005).
    Garth Brooks recorded the song 'Good Ride Cowboy' in honor of him.
