John Rich and Big Kenny also do their fair share of rapping. New artist Gretchen Wilson is featured singing background on "Saved", and Martina McBride adds her vocals to "Live This Life". -- Samantha Higinbotham
Album picks: "Love Train," "Drinkin' 'Bout You," and "Rollin' (The Ballad Of Big & Rich)"
Big $ Rich
Horse Of A Different Color
Everyone seems to have an opinion on the new duo Big $ Rich. I know I was skeptical, but seeing them live completely swayed me. These are two guys who bring talent, fun and new experiences to the stage. Their debut album - Horse of a Different Color really is different. They call it "country music without prejudice." "Love Train" and "Drinkin' 'Bout You" are my favorite cuts on the album which features many things that aren't always present in a country music CD. Cowboy Troy, a "6 foot 4 inch black rapping cowboy" as he calls himself, lends his talent to a few of the albums tracks.
