He's a little bit country, a little bit Rap...and completely confused.

Its seems like long ago when I was invited to my first Karaoke night. I thought to myself, “Karaoke? There's no way I am going to sing in front of a bunch of people.” But on one warm night in May, that all changed.

After several songs at the POETS kick off, C-Money is torn between what is in his heart and what is in his pants, and this has nothing to do with a girl. We had C-Money lay it on the line -- and by viewer vote -- C-money is gonna let the fans decide if the "C" in C-Money stands for Country or Cop Killa...

"I don’t remember my first song, but I can tell you it was a rap song. Rap songs are the easiest to sing so I thought what the hell. As I filled out my slip, I didn’t put C.T. or Conley. Instead, I chose C-Money. Yeah I don’t know where that came from either. So I get up on stage, rap my little white heart out, and people tell me I am good. So from then on, C-Money became a household name. Right there with Vanilla Ice, Eminem, and Emixalot. (wow, I didn't even have to add that)

I have grown tired of rap now. I sing the same songs over and over again and I wanted to mix things up. So I go back to my roots and decide to sing country. Of course, I practiced many songs in the shower (yes naked!) and thought I can do this. Sunday night rolls around and I choose "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" by Travis Tritt. The song is up beat, fast, and fun. It was over before it started. So Tuesday night rolls around at the new place POETS and I sing a slower country song. One that I know quite well. "Nobody Knows" by Kevin Sharp.
Why didn't I say the things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is a-tumblin' down
I can say it clearly but you're no where around

The nights are so lonely the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me

Later on that night I sing some George Strait and even had someone put in a George song for me. I even changed my name to "Country Money." According to most, I do a decent job with country songs. Not like "Wow, he is awesome!" but not "Wow, he sucks!" either.

So here is your chance to make a difference. I want you to vote should I
continue singing my country songs or just go back to rap? And be honest. I won’t take it personal. At least I am up there trying. if you can call it that

So yeah... Read the story and make a comment a vote so that CT can decide which side of the fence he is on.

I think Rap is your Forte...but I also enjoyed the country!
I would suggest doing mainly Rap, but throw a couple country songs in there every now and then to show some versatility!!!!
