Big & Rich is an American country music duo composed of Big Kenny and John Rich. Both members alternate as lead vocalists and play rhythm guitar. Rich was a founding member of the country music band Lonestar and later a solo artist for BNA Records, while Kenny was formerly a solo artist on Hollywood Records.
Big & Rich's first studio album, Horse of a Different Color, was released in 2004. This album produced four straight Top 40 country hits, including the #11 "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)", as well as collaborations with Cowboy Troy, Gretchen Wilson and Martina McBride. Comin' to Your City, released in November 2005, added another top-20 single, the Vietnam War-inspired "8th of November," as well as two other songs that reached the top 40. Joining the duo on this album were Cowboy Troy, Wilson, and Kris Kristofferson. Big & Rich's third studio album, Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace, produced the duo's first Number One single, "Lost in This Moment." After this album, both members went on hiatus and released solo albums, also charting solo singles in the country top 40: Rich with "Shuttin' Detroit Down" and Kenny with "Long After I'm Gone."
