'Big Kenny' Alphin and John Rich are together known as Big & Rich, and are one of the most exciting and popular country music acts of recent years. Breaking into the pop charts in 2004, they have introduced a fresh, lively and unapologetic sound to the ever-expanding popular country music scene. Disregarding criticism from country music purists, Big & Rich provide uplifting and light-hearted musical entertainment as well as the more emotional and reflexive guitar ballads that are central to country-and-western. The interplay between the high and low vocals as they swell and harmonize is entrancing, while the jittery guitar twangs and snappy percussions are infectiously catchy. Big & Rich have written and performed songs with many other artists including Gretchen Wilson, Shannon Brown and Faith Hill, which is a testament to their ethos of fun and collaboration.

John Rich and Kenny Alphin first began writing and playing together in 1998 when they formed a club night in Nashville dubbed Muzik Mafia in which various performers would collaborate. After some years of casual but popular performances of this kind, one of Big & Rich's songs was picked up and recorded by Martina McBride in 2003. The popularity of this version of 'She's a Butterfly' led Warner Bros to offer the duo a record deal of their own in 2004. Releasing their debut album Horse of a Different Color that same year, Big & Rich embarked on highly successful large scale tours with other Muzik Mafia band members. Touring as part of Tim McGraw's 2006 American tour as well as headlining their own American Revolution tour, Big & Rich established themselves as one of the most entertaining live acts in contemporary country music. 2005's Comin' to Your City and the later Big & Rich's Super Galactic Fan Pack also enjoyed considerable commercial success, which suggests that tickets to see Big & Rich tickets are going to stay hot for some time yet.
The excitement surrounding Big & Rich's live concerts has translated very well into critical and chart success. Horse of a Different Color topped the Billboard country album chart and reached #6 in the Billboard top 200 while Comin' to Your City peaked at #7 in the album chart just over a year later. Big & Rich's most successful single to date, 'Save A Cowboy (Ride a Horse),' is now identifiable as title music for TV's World Series of Poker.
Performing hit songs such as 'Wild West Show' and '20 Margaritas,' Big & Rich are unique in their spirit of collaboration and musical enjoyment. Simultaneously acclaimed by their peers and denounced by traditionalist critics, you can judge for yourself that these guys provide a live concert experience that is spontaneous and undeniably entertaining.
