Big & Rich Bio
Big & Rich’s first studio album, Horse of a Different Color, went triple platinum and produced four straight Top 40 country hits, including “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).” They followed that with the hits “8th of November” and the #1 single “Lost in This Moment.” The duo’s song “Comin’ to Your City” has been used as the opening theme to ESPN’s College Gameday since 2005.
Individually, John Rich and Big Kenny Alphin are first-rate musicians, songwriters, producers and entertainers. Together, they are one of most truly original musical forces. They are also both noted philanthropists: Kenny for his work with the United Nations Foundation and the Red Cross; Rich for his win on NBC-TV’s The Celebrity Apprentice that brought well over a million dollars to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Rich returns as a boardroom advisor to the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday, May 5 (NBC, 9 p.m.)
With the release of Hillbilly Jedi, they reasserted their position in being able to move audiences, from the spiritual anthem, “That’s Why I Pray” to the crowd-rocking hits “Party Like Cowboyz,” “Rock the Boat” and “Get Your Game On.”
“It seems like when you put John and Kenny together and we become Big & Rich, it’s like Clark Kent walking into the phone booth and coming out Superman,” said John. “We can’t explain it. It’s like a chemical reaction between Kenny and me on stage, something you can feel there – Hillbilly Jedi, the force is with you. It’s funny to think about but it’s really true, we walk out on stage and start laying into this thing, the energy goes back and forth between us and the crowd and it’s palpable.”
The title Hillbilly Jedi comes from a line in the album’s opener, “Born Again,” which features Richie Sambora on guitar and harmonies with Jon Bon Jovi.
