This fusion has been traced back to before Hip Hop was even invented, as a lot of blues and country artists displayed vocal styles which were similar to rapping. One journalist traced the origins of Country Rap to Woody Guthrie. Some spoken-word songs by the Sons of the Pioneers also have rap-like elements.

* [[Music/HouseOfPain Everlast]] dabbles in this genre sometimes. A recent album included a cover of JohnnyCash's "Folsom Prison Blues", which incorporated HipHop samples and scratching, including the beat from Music/CypressHill's "Insane in the Brain".

Hip Hop and Country music have been fused in different variations since the 1980s - one of the more notable early efforts is The Music/BeastieBoys sampling from the ''{{Deliverance}}'' soundtrack on their 1989 album ''Paul's Boutique'', and Music/DeLaSoul using a sample from [[Music/GeorgeClinton Parliament]]'s "Little Ole Country Boy" for the chorus of "Potholes in My Lawn", in the same year. Some modern Country artists have incorporated Hip Hop influences into their music, and collaborated with popular rappers, and there are also artists devoted primarily or solely to Country Rap fusions.

* Music/CledusTJudd has "Gone Funky", a parody of Music/AlanJackson's "Gone Country" that has three displaced country artists turning to rap (basically making it an inversion of the original). The chorus has a rap production to it as well.

* TheBellamyBrothers' 1987 single "Country Rap," which coincidentally shares its name with this trope. The song just missed the top 30 of the ''Billboard'' Hot Country Singles chart, and was just one way brothers Howard and David experimented with other styles and genres in their music; for instance, "Get into Reggae Cowboy" -- which used (guess what) reggae as its main beat -- became a top 20 country hit in 1982.
