Big & Rich Hiatus Ends in July 2011

Good news for the fans of Big & Rich. The duo’s performing hiatus will come to an end in July 2011 when the Country singers are scheduled to appear onstage for the first time in three years at the Craven Country Jamboree in Saskatchewan, Canada. This will be the third time the two have performed at the music festival.
For the followers of Big & Rich, this reunion may come to as a big surprise. Over the past few years after the 2008 announcement of a hiatus while Big Kenny recovered from a neck injury, the two have released solo projects. Big Kenny’s solo album, The Quiet Times of a Rock and Roll Farm Boy, and his first single, “Long After I’m Gone” peaked at No. 34 on the charts. Meanwhile, Rich released a solo album as well, Son of a Preacher Man, and has an upcoming EP, Rich Rocks. Rich’s first single from his album, “Shuttin’ Detriot Down,” peaked at No. 12, and his newest single, “Country Done Come to Town,” from his EP has peaked at No. 34.
Other Country rockers scheduled to perform at the Craven Country Jamboree include Darius Rucker, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, Gretchen Wilson, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and John Michael Montgomery. On top of that, the newly solo Ronnie Dunn will also be playing. 
"I think this is the strongest lineup we've had overall," executive producer of the festival, Troy Vollhoffer, said, as this year marks the seventh year for the festival. "We still have some names that we need to announce, but overall we've got something for everybody. We've got the superstar power, we have artists that have never played the show before. When you get to the point where you've had the largest artists in country music, we're back, bringing that same level of talent. This the best one, rounded out. It's a great mix of different dynamics."
The Craven Country Jamboree has sold out the last three years, and weekend passes are now available for $149. For more information on the multi-day music festival, visit
