(Battle Creek, Mich.) Dec. 8, 2016 – FireKeepers Casino Hotel is excited to announce that country duo Big and Rich will be taking the event center by storm on Friday, February 3 at 8 p.m. Tickets will go on sale Saturday, December 3, at 10 a.m.

John Rich and “Big Kenny” Alphin merged talents in 1998 to create one of country music's most attention-getting duos – Big & Rich. The group hit the big time when “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” off their triple-platinum 2004 debut album, Horse of a Different Color became a Top 40 hit. This album produced four straight Top 40 country hits, 

The duo's second album, “Comin' to Your City”, was released in November of 2005.  The first single, "Comin' to Your City" moved up the charts and ESPN utilized a version of the song as the opening theme for its Saturday program College GameDay.

For all their grandstanding and showmanship, Big and Rich also have a knack for creating heart-melting ballads. The tender side of the duo is emphasized on their latest album, “Gravity”, featuring the duo’s newest single “Lovin’ Lately”. Other hits include “Lost in This Moment with you,” and “Comin’ to Your City”.

“Big and Rich brings a sound that blends country with rock and roll and a bit of hip hop.  They will have the crowd singing and dancing all night,” states FireKeepers Vice President of Marketing, Jim Wise. “The energy this band brings to the stage is sure to leave guests wanting more.” 

Individually, John and Big Kenny are first-rate musicians, songwriters, producers, entertainers—and now the creative force behind their own label imprint, Big & Rich Records. Together, they are one of the most original musical forces ever unleashed on a welcoming world.  Big & Rich are partnering with indie distributor and management company Thirty Tigers on an upcoming 2017 album.
