Big Kenny to Star in New TLC Reality Show

Big Kenny

With a style that’s part pirate, part Renaissance man, and a good bit rock and roll country boy, Kenny Alphin, aka “Big Kenny” of Big & Rich, ditched farm life in Virginia to pursue his dream of making music in Nashville. Fueled by faith, authenticity, and plenty of heart, BIG KENNY AND FAMILY follows Kenny, his wife Christiev, and their sons, Dakota, Lincoln, Christopher and Cameron, as they navigate their unordinary home life while Kenny is on a break from his whirlwind tour. The all-new one-hour special premieres Wednesday, September 2 at 10/9c on TLC.

Big & Rich are killing it in the charts and Kenny’s on the road well over half the year, making the few days home with his family truly special and completely unpredictable. Despite his crazy travel schedule and Christiev’s back-to-back styling gigs with A-list clientele, the couple manages to find the perfect balance between full-fledged rock stars and devoted parents.

Viewers will get the chance to take a peek inside Kenny’s celebrity lifestyle and may be surprised to find that when he’s not filling stadiums and concert venues, he lives a typical life – albeit influenced by his over-the-top personality – filled with family dinners, yard work, date nights, playtime and bedtime stories.

Known for their explosive live performances and instant party anthems, notorious rule-breakers Big & Rich show their softer side on the latest smash hit, “Run Away With You”, which is rocketing up the charts. From their fifth studio album, Gravity, the music video for “Run Away With You” debuted exclusively on today.

Following the duo’s smash single “Look At You,” the new single was co-written by John Rich and his former protégé from The CW network’s ‘The Next,’ Michael Ray. The video was directed Lloyd Norman, who has also directed videos for Florida Georgia Line, Dallas Smith and more. The song is the second single release from the pair’s debut album on Big & Rich Records, a venture that has allowed Big Kenny and John Rich to stretch their creative legs.

“Having two real life Big and Rich fans who really are in love to star in this video is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen! It was incredible to watch their journey and have them end up with us on stage dancing to ‘Run Away With You!’ Love it!”, said Rich

Big Kenny shared, “We were wanting this video to be a real special experience for a couple fans. This is their journey! They found LOVE – and their trip ended with a Big & Rich style throw down at the beach! Fun stuff all around. How cool is THAT?!”

Download “Run Away With You” on iTunes for a limited time for $.69 starting Friday, July 10th!

Joining Rich this year are Lee Greenwood, Lorrie Morgan, T.G. Sheppard, John Conlee, Frankie Ballard, comedians Williams & Ree and his Big & Rich bandmate, Big Kenny.

Proceeds from the event, which kicks off the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic golf tournament week, benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Funds from this event help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

“I’m incredibly proud that the St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends charity event has grown into an amazing entertainment event over the past four years, while continuing to support the kids of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Rich. “It’s a blessing to be part of an industry that has supported St. Jude so passionately for the past 30 years.”

St. Jude partner Window World® is presenting sponsor for the fourth consecutive year, and plays an important role in the success of St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends. Through its charitable foundation Window World Cares®, the company supports St. Jude throughout the year and has raised more than $5 million for the kids of St. Jude.
