Big & Rich Breaking New Ground with Historic New Album Release

Big and Rich

Country superstars Big & Rich, Big Kenny and John Rich, are celebrating 10 years of hit music making with their highly-anticipated new album, Gravity.   It’s the multi-platinum selling duo’s fifth studio album and is set to launch on September 23, 2014.  Big & Rich’s lead-off single for the project, “Look at You” has already proven a chart-climbing success.  Their first studio album, Horse of a Different Color, was released by Warner Bros. in 2004, producing four straight hits, including the iconic “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).”   Other accolades include being first-rate songwriters, producers and musicians with a roster of collaborations and hits produced or penned for various artists including Jason Aldean, Gretchen Wilson, James Otto, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Merle Haggard, Bon Jovi, John Anderson, Willie Nelson, Jewel, Keith Anderson, Hank Williams, Jr., John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Tim McGraw, Ky-Mani Marley and Cowboy Troy.

In addition to the latest recording project, the larger-than-life duo has formed its own label, Big & Rich Records, a partnership with Kobalt Label Services.  Big Kenny describes the business venture and forthcoming CD as a platform for gaining creative control of their trailblazing musical legacy.

“This is an exciting and intense time in the history of Big and Rich.  We continue to embrace all the change that happens in our business of entertainment.  As artists, we are now at the place where we can finally gain complete creative control.  That’s huge.  It allows us to be true to ourselves and be the trailblazers we’ve always risked being. We want to be important to Country music.  It’s important to Big and Rich. It is our musical legacy.  Our new album title is perfect.  Big and Rich can now really feel the Gravity.  We are counting our blessings,” he says.

John Rich adds, “We couldn’t be happier with how the fans and radio are responding to our new music!  To take on the challenge of being your own label and slugging it out with the majors is a gambler’s move, but BK and I are happy to just let it all ride.”

Big & Rich are generating rave reviews for the summer leg of their 2014 concert tour with shows spanning across the U.S. and Canada.  Cities among upcoming stops for the tour include Orlando, Grand Rapids, Spokane, Hampton, Panama City and more.

It Costs How Much to Hire Taylor Swift for a Music Gig??????

Taylor Swift

Thanks to Priceonomics and an anonymous source at the booking agency Degy Entertainment, the 22 Words blog has a list of the asking prices of hundreds of musical acts, from the ones who are just slightly more successful than a bar band to the the elite few who ask a million dollars just to show up… …

Country acts like Big & Rich, Dierks Bentley and Kip Moore will show up for $100,000+.  You will pay slightly more for Miranda Lambert, Hunter Hayes or Jake Owen who are asking $150,000+.

If you have big bucks to spend on your party or music gig then go big with Carrie Underwood who will show up for only $4-500,000.  Keith Urban is asking somewhere between $4-600,000 ladies and Taylor Swift will show up for a whopping $1+ million!!!!
