Brian and Chrissy had a fascinating conversation with John Rich from 'Big and Rich' just a few days before he and Big Kenny prepared to throw down at WGNA's Countryfest 2019 in less than a week. In part 2 of this two-part GNA interview with Rich, he explains the message behind his newest single Shut Up About Politics and why he personally won't shut up when it comes to the actions of USA women's soccer star Megan Rapinoe who kneels for the anthem before World Cup games.

Even if you don't listen to country, you know who Big and Rich are thanks to 'Save a Horse(Ride a Cowboy)'. If you listen to country, well it goes without saying that for the last 15 years or so, no other group has gotten more airplay on radio, television, weddings, parties and bars!  But it hasn't been easy for this fun-loving duo. Rich is outspoken but very reasonable.  He's passionate and intelligent.  He speaks loudly and proudly about his love for his country, his bands perseverance, their amazing fans and even, you guessed it...politics.

Check out Big and Rich along with Old Dominion and more, this Saturday, July 6th at SPAC! To get tickets for Countryfest 2019, click here.
