About the Band
After tumultuous times as part of as band (Lonestar
in John Rich's case), and as a solo artist not getting adequate support from his label (Big Kenny), Big and Rich met each
other at a club and began writing songs together in 1998. Although they wrote some great songs together, including I Pray
for You which Rich released as a part of his solo project, it was not until 2004 that they finally released their debut single.
They released three studio albums before going on a hiatus in 2008 while Big Kenny recovered from neck surgery. They got back
together in 2011 and released their fourth album Hillbilly Jedi in 2012. The band has plans to release a fifth album in 2014
and will likely be debuting a lot of their new material while playing festival dates early in the year.
was a banner year for Big and Rich, they released their debut album Horse of a Different Color and the album's first single
Wild West Show hit number 21 on the country singles charts. Following the success of the single, Big and Rich were invited
to play at the Academy of Country Music Awards where they debuted their second single Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy). The song
would also go on to become a hit, peaking at number 11 on the country singles charts and served as the theme song for the
World Series of Poker on ESPN the same year. The band began a tour opening up for Tim McGraw which allowed them to find an
expanded fan base and saw Big and Rich well on their way to country superstardom. The release of their final two singles from
Horse of a Different Color, Holy Water and Big Time were also successes and the album was hailed as not only a critical but
a commercial success.
Maybe it has been months, or even years, that you have been hoping
and waiting to finally have the chance to see Big and Rich performing live. Maybe you even thought while they were on their
three year hiatus that you would never see them performing together again. However, finally you are in the concert hall and
the lights go down as the superstar duo and their supporting band make their way on stage. They begin playing the opening
notes to a song off of any one of their hit albums, Horse of a Different Color, Comin' to Your City, Between Raising Hell
and Amazing Grace, or Hillbilly Jedi. As the night goes on the crowd is worked into a frenzy and spends the whole evening
singing and dancing along. Country music concerts are some of the best and most energetic in the business and when it's a
concert by legitimate worldwide stars like Big and Rich the electricity in the air is even more palpable. This is one act
you do not want to miss.
Big and Rich's song Comin' to Your City has been used as the opening theme
for College Gameday on ESPN every college football season since 2005. Clearly their music appeals to the football crowd as
another song, We Got It Going On, was chosen as the promotional song for the Arena Football League in 2007. Always capable
of doing something unpredictable, Big and Rich even covered (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!) by the Beastie Boys.
The band's 2012 single That's Why I Pray debuted at number 24 on the country singles charts, the highest ever debut by a duo
on those charts in history, and was later issued as an EP available only from WalMart.
