A band, a brand, a bond and a brotherhood: Big Kenny Alphin and John Rich – Big & Rich – have blazed an indelible mark on modern country music, not simply by breaking the rules, but by setting them on fire. Big & Rich have captivated a multi-generational community of listeners with their sterling song craft and recorded performances. Now a decade and a half into a storied career they tour the country for over 100+ dates annually, presenting electrifying concert spectacles of ceaseless energy and outrageous personality.
From Big & Rich’s 2004 debut, the triple platinum Horse of a Different Color and their hit “Save a Horse, Ride A Cowboy,” the duo evolved into one of country music’s most auspicious partnerships. Big & Rich has garnered multiple Grammy, ACM, CMA and CMT Music Award nominations, subsequent best-selling collections include Comin’ to Your City, Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace, Hillbilly Jedi, Gravity – which delivered three consecutive Top 10 hits – and their most recent collection, Did It For The Party, that debuted at Number One on the sales charts.
Joining Big & Rich is Cowboy Troy and DJ Sinister. Blending country and rap into his self-styled ‘hick-hop’ style, 6 feet 5 inches black rapper Cowboy Troy emerged at the start of the new millennium as one of the more unusual figures on the Nashville music scene. DJ Sinister is at the helm of the hottest syndicated program sweeping country radio as the mix master of “Country Fried Mix.” Now on over 50 country radio stations and the number 1 weekend party.
