Big & Rich partners with Reviver

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 – Big & Rich entered into a partnership with Reviver Records.

This move reunites the duo - Big Kenny and John Rich - with Reviver Records' President Gator Michaels. Effective immediately, Reviver Records will promote the duo's latest single "Brand New Buzz," to radio. The deal is for promotion, according to Big & Rich's publicist.

"John, Kenny and I have enjoyed tremendous success in the past, and we all expect that success to continue well into the future." said Michaels.

"We are thrilled to align with Reviver Records as they continue to build momentum for 'Brand New Buzz'," the duo said in a press release. "Gator and his team have been big believers in our music since we launched our debut single 'Wild West Show' in 2004, as well as the genre-bending career single 'Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy, We are ready to rock this new era into the stratosphere."

Big & Rich will launch the Peace, Love & Happy Hour Tour presented by Redneck Riviera Whiskey in April.

CD reviews for Big & Rich

Gravity CD review - Gravity
Was it all their fault? It's been 10 years since Big & Rich injected a modern twist on the country sound on to the charts. The monster hit from their debut record, "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)", never did reach number 1, but it sure seemed inescapable in 2004. Since then all of the duo's antics that seemed daring then -- from hip hop experimentation to raucous rock shows celebrating a never ending party ethic - these things don't just feel like the fringes of country »»»
Hillbilly Jedi CD review - Hillbilly Jedi
Big & Rich, last heard from with 2009's "Greatest Hits," is a duo that vacillates between musical extremes. Either they're partying like there's no tomorrow, as happens during Cowboyz, or they are the preacher's pets, exemplified by That's Why I Pray. But can these lustful 'Cause I Play Guitar guys, be the same ones that singer tender ballads like Last Words? Apparently so. It's the whole Saturday night vs. Sunday morning paradox, one supposes. »»»
Greatest Hits CD review - Greatest Hits
Thoroughly unafraid to lead the freak parade for the better part of this decade, Big Kenny and John Rich have repeatedly demonstrated their range in each of their three studio albums, giving voice to tender ballads alongside their over-the-top party hits. That range is well-showcased here. As is often the case with hits collections, the way you feel about this album will be directly related to how you feel about Big and Rich, a duo that has served to divide the country community between those »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: We Banjo 3 beaks down the barriers – The joy is palpable when the music is of the Irish variety. And when you combine that with a typically uptempo bluegrass sound - We Banjo 3 labels its style of music Celtgrass - let's say it makes for one fun night. The group, which has been around since 2011, is a quartet from Galway Ireland comprised of two sets of brothers - the cool looking... »»»
Concert Review: Gayle, Orlando provide good old-fashioned entertainment – Although this pairing of country star Crystal Gayle and Tony Orlando may have - on the surface - appeared to be an odd one, tonight's audience demonstratively loved each performer equally. It was an evening of memorable songs, fun and funny stories and just good old-fashioned entertainment. Gayle opened the show with a strong set of country... »»»
