A band, a brand, a bond and a brotherhood: Big Kenny Alphin and John Rich – Big & Rich – share a decade and a half into a storied career. Very notably, the pair calls the shots with ownership of their master recordings and music publishing rights through Big & Rich Records in partnerships with Thirty Tigers / The Orchard and Kobalt. Additionally, both contribute generously as philanthropists and flourish as lifestyle entrepreneurs.
2020 will see the band hitting the road for the “Redneck Riviera Whiskey Presents Big & Rich’s Peace, Love & Happy Hour Tour,” the latest outing by two very separate individuals who in many ways, might seem polar opposites. John is driven and intense, while Kenny’s motto of “love everybody” exemplifies his idealistic philosophy. “I think Kenny and I are a great representation of how Americans should be in general,” says John. “We disagree on a lot of things. But the things we agree on override our disagreements. We have a drink and get back on stage and it’s all good.” Big Kenny concurs with this assessment. “I think we both bring a balance to each other, no matter what the situation is. That’s what makes relationships good, when you have that dynamic.”
Big & Rich inked with Warner Bros Records. From their 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. The song “Rollin’” (The Ballad of Big & Rich), laid down the law with prophetic lines, “Country boys don’t rock and roll / Yeah the record man told me so.” Clearly, this record man was wrong. Garnering 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 #1 on the sales charts.
