|Big & Rich are coming to `Dega|
After a day of epic racing with the Talladega 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series, the ‘Dega faithful will be treated to a grand time with Big & Rich for one of the most anticipated Saturday Night Concerts ever at NASCAR’s Most Competitive track.
John, Big Kenny and Troy will play a host of all-time favorites, as well as their highly successful album titled “Gravity” that has had back-to-back top ten hits - “Look at You” and “Run Away With You.”
These hit songs and many more will have NASCAR’s Party Capital reveling well into the night as Big & Rich will dazzle and impress fans of all genres with their own forms of rock, country, and rap. How does one go about witnessing this mega event? The concert is free to anyone who has a ticket to Sunday’s GEICO 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, in which Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is the defending champion.
America's Technicolor cowboys, John Rich and Big Kenny Alphin are first-rate musicians, songwriters, producers and entertainers. Together, they are one of the most original musical forces ever unleashed on the industry. Exploding into the public consciousness in 2003 as true country music game changers, they released epic songs like "Comin to Your City," and "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” that elevated the group to superstar status. Their music displays incomparable range, with well-crafted songs about love, loss, patriotism and social issues that have impacted many people all across the world.
Their partner in crime, Cowboy Troy, will be right there as well, as the self-proclaimed “hick-hop” artist continues to amaze the masses with his own brand of southern, country-fried rap that has turned heads for years.
