Big & Rich on “Larry King Now” Did a College Girl Write ‘Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)’?

big and rich

Big & Rich paid a visit to Larry King Live and talked about the inspiration of ‘Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)’ and their shock on how successful it eventually became.

“We continue to be on a daily basis, surprised by the success of that song every day. That is our ‘Sweet Home Alabama.’” Big Kenny and John Rich told Larry how the song was written, “College students from all over the world entered this contest to come to Nashville and learn about the music business and part of it was to learn about writing songs. One girl says “well I was at this place last night, and this fella comes up to me and says ‘hey there darling, how’d you like to save a horse and ride a cowboy’ […] and lines came out in an hour.”

Big & Rich tell Larry what they think of today’s popular country artists including The Band Perry, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line and Miranda Lambert “She’s got this song called ‘Automatic’ out right now that, to me, is one of the greatest things I’ve ever heard.”

Big & Rich concluded their interview by answering social media questions from some of their biggest fans including with whom they’d like to collaborate with, where they find inspiration for their songs and questions about their tour.
