Big It seems like Kenny Alphin and John Rich have been doing everything this past year. That is, everything except tour together. All that’s about to change, when the Big & Rich kick off a 30-day tour on June 12.

352391R1109A_09A_118 - Copy The short tour will start with the June 12 show at Winstock Country Music Festival in Winstead, Minn. They have one show scheduled for Canada, and that will be July 24 at the Rock the Park summer concert series in London, Ontario.

Highlights include a June 13 performance at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, N .J., a July 2 show at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Conn., and an Aug. 30 show at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion in Gilford, N.H.

The pair met in 1998, after John went to one of Kenny’s shows in Nashville, but it wasn’t until 2005 that the duo made a name for itself with “Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy,” which helped push their CD, Different Color, to the top of Billboard’s charts. That CD also gave us “Comin’ to Your City,” and “8th of November,” which received a CMA nomination in 2006.
