Big & Rich Picked the Title of Their Next Album . . . With a Little Help From Bon Jovi!
BIG & RICH don't have a release date for their next album . . . but they DO have a title. They're calling it "Hillbilly Jedis". They settled on it while writing songs with a couple of dudes from BON JOVI. BIG KENNY ALPHIN tells the "Tennessean", quote, "It came out in a writing session we were doing with RICHIE SAMBORA and (JON) BON JOVI." They are going to record the song on our new album and a line in the song was hillbilly jedis with attitude." All of a sudden, Bon Jovi stops and says, 'Hillbilly Jedis? That's it. I'd buy that shirt.' We were like, 'Hey, that's about as descriptive as you can get of what we are.'" As far as what the new album will sound like. Expect something similar to Big & Rich's debut album, "Horse of a Different Color". Big Kenny explains, quote, "(It has) that same kind of heartfelt, poignant songs and a lot of good fun and pushing the limits as far as we can."
