“Swamp People” retiree Troy Broussard might not be involved with filming the iconic show anymore, but that doesn’t mean he’s ever going to give up his swamp lifestyle. In fact, since retiring, the star has had more time than ever to dedicate to fishing, swampy projects, and family life. Celebrating an early start to gator season in a recent Instagram post, the outdoor aficionado doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. In other happy news, it seems his “baby girl” is gearing up to follow suit.
In Broussard’s most recent Instagram photo, his daughter shows off her impressive airboat skills. She rocks an iconic American flag patterned life vest and over the ear protectors to shield against the air boat’s obnoxious buzz. She looks strong and confident as she navigates the group through the thick of the swamp.
Broussard appears to be having a proud daddy moment and lovingly captions the photo:
The top comment commends Broussard for showing his daughter the ropes of swamp life:
“A badass raising a badass! Nice!”
Troy Broussard Mourns Music Idol
Almost a month ago to the day, rock band ZZ Top lost their talented bassist, Dusty Hill, when he died in his Texas home. The group found a lot of success with hits like “Legs” and “Gimme All Your Loving.” Apart from music, Dusty was also involved with acting. He collected a couple of credits over the years with small parts in Back to the Future Part III, WWE Raw and King of the Hill. The musician had been battling with his health for quite some time, so the death did not necessarily come as a shock to his loved ones.
Still, many fans across the world came together to mourn the loss. If you’ve been keeping up with Troy Broussard on social media, you may know that Broussard was an avid fan of the rock group. He took to Twitter after news of the death started circulating and voiced his condolences.
RIP Dusty Hill. One of my heroes of the music world from back when I was a kid till today and forever more. Texas Blues will never be the same!!!— T-Roy(Swamp People) (@broussard_troy) July 29, 2021
It’s A Texas Thing
Broussard is definitely a classic rock and heavy metal fiend. His social media posts have involved Metallica and Stevie Ray over the years. But the one band he always turns back to is ZZ Top. Broussard has been a vocal fan and avid listener of ZZ Top for quite some time actually.
The caption on the “Just Got Paid” photo might give some insight as to why. The band was actually formulated near Broussard’s hometown and birthplace in Texas. It’s this connection that fuels the fire. At the end of the day, Broussard is a proud American and proud Texan through and through.
