William Lee “Cowboy Bill” Martin was born on May 21, 1966 to parents Donia and David Martin, in a little town called Blue Mound just north of Fort Worth, Texas.
The youngest of four kids, not everyone was happy to see his arrival. As the story goes, his oldest brother “Bubba” (yes, a real nickname) was in the middle of his 7th birthday party when his mother’s water broke, putting an end to the festivities. When asked how he felt about getting a new baby brother Bubba said, “He ruined my 7th birthday party. I hate him.”
