Biography

(1998 – present)

Big & Rich is a country duo that believes in “Country Music Without Prejudice.” They are 2 of the 5 leaders of the MuzikMafia, which includes artists like Gretchen Wilson, Jon Nicholson, Cowboy Troy, and others. Big & Rich tend to mix different genres together with country, usually rock. One of their most notable songs is “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy.”

Big Kenny Alphin and John Rich met in 1998 at a bar where Big Kenny was playing. They met up afterwards and made appointments to write songs together. Eventually, they launched an album together in 2004. It was called Horse of a Different Color. Their second album is called Comin’ to Your City and was released on Nov 15, 2005.

Their 2007 album was entitled Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace. The lead single off that album was the romantic ‘Lost in This Moment’. They achieved their first number one song to date with this release.

The That’s Why I Pray Songfacts reports that the first single released by Big & Rich following a hiatus in which Big Kenny recovered from a neck injury and John Rich released a solo debut album made history. When That’s Why I Pray debuted at # 24 on the Billboard Country chart, it became the highest debut by a duo in the Nielsen BDS era.

    I don't listen to a lot of country music, but I'm a fan of these guys. Saw them play at a Save Darfur rally a few years ago and really liked them.

    What's up with all the negative noise coming down on Big and Rich?..If you don't dig the sound ..lots of other type of cha cha to listen to...BUT ..Rather than extend that courtesy it's someone acting like a teen in angst for not getting his way..Some of these folks just love to stir up crap to get a kick for being some kind of bad ass when in fact the only bad I see is their breath and imaginations

    if save a horse ride a cowboy is the best thing to happen to country, the sound of my excrement plopping into a porcelain bowl is the best thing to happen to noise music

    I 'lol' at j2los's comment. I mean really, you shouldn't comment on a genre you can't even appreciate. Heck, I mainly listen hardcore and screamo, yet I still think Big & Rich is one of the best things to happen to country.

    These two have such a good sound. I love country music because all of the different kinds of sounds you can hear in the genre!

    The most emotionally intense, jaw-droppingly beautiful music I've ever heard. Simply sublime.
