Big & RichWarner Bros. Records multi-platinum duo Big & Rich is set to put forth their third studio release, Between Raising Hell And Amazing Grace, June 5. Their debut book, Big & Rich: All Access, will hit shelves the same day. Big & Rich kicked off the releases with an appearance on NBC's Today Show Summer Concert Series on June 1, where they performed the fastest-rising single of their career, "Lost In This Moment," which is quickly becoming the hottest wedding song of the season. The much-anticipated album is also highlighted by guest performances from John Legend, who lends vocals to the track "Eternity," as well as Wyclef Jean, who wrote and recorded a rap for "Please Man." Lil Jon also adds his own personal touch to the "Country Club" re-mix of "Loud," available as a bonus track at iTunes when you pre-order the deluxe version of Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace.

The hour-long special, Big & Rich: Between Raising Hell And Amazing Grace, premiered on GAC June 2. June 3, they graced the cover of The Tennessean, and the following Sunday will be featured in the LA Times. Big & Rich will perform on the Tonight Show's Outdoor Concert Series June 18, the Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson June 20, and live from Kansas City for the CBS Early Show Concert Series August 10. Their high-voltage live concerts will also be featured this summer on CMT's Summerfest Concert Series and the CMA Music Fest ABC Special. Look for them to appear on Access Hollywood, CMT Top 20 Countdown, GAC Top 20, GAC Nights, in Blender, Country Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, and much more.

This past weekend, Big & Rich's image appeared on no less than 500 million Pepsi cans, the design of which Big & Rich unveiled at the downtown Nashville Hard Rock Café last Thursday during CMA Music Fest. The duo made several appearances at the festival to promote the CD and book release, including an autograph session at the Borders booth in the Nashville Convention Center and a signing and performance at the West End FYE store from 2:00-4:00pm Thursday, June 7. On July 3rd, Big & Rich will also appear at an Evans City, PA Wal-Mart and a Florence, KY Meijer.

The world was introduced to the genre-bending super-duo with the release of their May 2004 triple-platinum, #1 debut release Horse Of A Different Color, which spawned such hits as "Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)," "Holy Water" and "Big Time." Their follow-up CD, Comin' To Your City, was released in November 2005 and has also achieved platinum status, fueled by hits like the title track and the much-nominated "8th of November." Both John Rich and Big Kenny have been crowned songwriters of the year by their respective performing rights organizations. Big Kenny is the 2005 BMI Songwriter Of The Year, and recently scored his first #1 hit for Tim McGraw's "Last Dollar." John Rich is the ASCAP Songwriter/Artist of the year two years running, and has penned #1 hits for Gretchen Wilson, Faith Hill, and Jason Aldean.
