Kenny Alphin and John Rich, Big & Rich, have blazed an indelible mark on modern country music. They have captivated a multi-generational community of listeners with their sterling songcraft and performances. Now a decade and a half into their storied career, they continue to tour the country for 100-plus dates annually presenting electrifying concert spectacles of ceaseless energy and outrageous personality. In 2019, Big & Rich are on the road for the "Redneck Riviera Whiskey Presents Big & Rich's Peace, Love & Happy Hour Tour."
"I want to be a fun and entertaining positive voice and entity in my community, in my country, and in the world," said Virginia native Alphin. "I hope people know that those are the things that are important to me. And when they leave a Big & Rich concert, they should feel like they've just witnessed the greatest show on earth."
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. The record was recognized with multiple Grammy, ACM, CMA and CMT Music Award nominations. Their subsequent best-selling collections include "Comin' to Your City," "Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace," "Hillbilly Jedi," and "Gravity," which delivered three consecutive Top-10 hits - and their most recent collection, "Did It For The Party," debuted at No. 1 on the sales charts.
"In the pursuit of the American Dream, if you want something, think hard, work hard, and go after it," said Rich. "There's no guarantee you're going to get it, but the fact you're allowed to pursue it is where you should find your happiness."
