Lenny Cooper's career is aimed squarely at the hillbilly mud-bogging crowd, who like their country mixed in with some urban beats and a little bit of rap, and even Cooper describes himself as an accidental recording artist. Cooper grew up in rural North Carolina, where his passion was mud bogging with his friends. At the age of 17, he wrote a song, "Mud Digger," about his favorite pastime, made a home recording of it, and posted it to YouTube, then went back to his life. The song began to rack up views, and attracted the notice of Colt Ford, who signed Cooper to his Average Joe's label. A debut album, Diesel Fuel, was released by the imprint in 2012, followed by Mud Dynasty a year later in 2013. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
