John Rich is AWESOME! He first hit the country music scene as a member of Lonestar. After several years with Lonestar, John left the band for a solo career and later got with his friend "Big" Kenny Alphin to write music. A manager suggested that the two form a duo, and Big & Rich was born.
Big & Rich went on to have a ton of hits including "Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)," "Lost In This Moment" and more, plus you can hear their song "Comin' To Your City" every Saturday morning as the theme song to ESPN's College Gameday. Big & Rich took a hiatus between 2007 and 2011 and had various solo projects, but came screamin' back with more hits including "Look At You," "Run Away With You," "Lovin' Lately" with Tim McGraw, and "California" after their break.
John also has a company called Redneck Riviera, which made some of the coolest boots ever (I have a pair!), and John and Redneck Riviera are now making whiskey... which is the PERFECT endeavor for John Rich to get his hands in!
One of the things that's so special about John is his support for our military, and 10% of every bottle of Redneck Riviera Whiskey goes to help Folds of Honor, which provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled heroes.
Here is my chat with John about everything mentioned here- and more! The part about Granny Rich is PRICELESS!!! Enjoy our chat, and go enjoy a bottle of Redneck Riviera Whiskey (enjoy responsibly, of course!)! Here is a link as to where you can buy the whiskey.
