The New Album From Big & Rich Is "Comin' To Your City" November 15th

NASHVILLE, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 16, 2005 -- Warner Bros. Records is pleased to announce that Big & Rich will release their new album, "Comin' To Your City," on November 15th. Big Kenny, John Rich and Paul Worley all returned to the producers' chairs for this new 13-track release. The title track to "Comin' To Your City" will serve as the first single; both the song and the accompanying video will hit country radio and video outlets in September. The sophomore release is the highly anticipated follow-up to Big & Rich's debut album "Horse Of A Different Color," which is certified double platinum by the RIAA in recognition of sales of more than two million units.

"Comin' To Your City" features such crowd pleasers as the uptempo tracks "Blow My Mind" and the title track. "Never Mind Me" is a beautiful ballad that has not only the blended harmonies that Big & Rich are known for, but it showcases Big Kenny's rich baritone and John Rich's angelic tenor. Country music legend Kris Kristofferson lends his vocal talent to the opening narrative of the haunting "8th Of November," a true story about Vietnam vet Niles Harris and the fateful day on November 8, 1965, when the 173rd Airborne Brigade was ambushed by over 1,200 Vietcong during Operation Hump.

Currently Billboard magazine's reigning New Country Duo/Group Artist of the year, Big & Rich has been recognized by the Country Music Association, the Academy Of Country Music, the Grammys and CMT, receiving various nominations for their debut album "Horse Of A Different Color," and have several nods in the current round of CMA Award voting. Lifetime Television also honored the duo with their "Champions For Change Award" for bringing the serious issue of spousal abuse to light in their song "Holy Water."

Big Kenny and John Rich burst onto the scene in 2004 with their genre-busting brand of country music without prejudice. Big & Rich's defiance of country music conventions and their fusion of gospel, rock, metal and hip-hop ignited a media firestorm that landed the boys on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, on the stages of "The Tonight Show," "Good Morning America" and the "Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular" and in the pages of Rolling Stone, USA Today, Blender, Tracks and GQ.

The galactic duo is set to roll out their new album in their usual Big & Rich style. Big & Rich is currently on the road with Brooks & Dunn's 34-city national Deuces Wild Tour, which concludes on October 30th in West Palm Beach, Florida. Look for the new album, "Comin' To Your City," in stores November 15th.
