Toppy” from ‘Days Before Rodeo.’ I know it’s crazy because it’s graphic, but
I found it so funny how he made a song about that. Speaker 10: And I think I’m going to get all
the questions right. Speaker 11: I don’t think I’ll do that

Speaker 2: I saw him in concert recently there was all types of stuff going around from like the rollercoaster to the ferris wheel to the lights. Speaker 6: He’ll bring people on stage. He’ll do the little mosh pit and the crowd
surfing, which is cool. Speaker: I think his talent stands out, a lot of the energy he does on stage it’s pretty dope. Speaker: When people make music with content for a purpose outside of themselves I always like that. Speaker 11: He’s a rock star. He’s a rock star and a rapper in one. So that’s kind of cool, we don’t really see
that that often. Tia Hill: Well, Travis fans came out strong
today and while some found the test pretty easy, for others it was a bit of a challenge. How’d you do? Let us know in the comments. I’m Tia with Genius News bring you the meaning
