Up Close and Personal with our Star-studded Lineup

Big & Rich with Cowboy Troy

Big Kenny Alphin and John Rich (Big & Rich) enjoy a multi-generational fan base. They have generated dozens of country hits, most notably “Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy),” “Lost in This Moment,” “Wild West Show” and “Holy Water.” Known for their ceaseless energy and outrageous personality, their shows have been electrifying audiences for a decade and a  half as they tour the country with over 100 dates annually.Their unusual partnership pairs the driven and intense John with the idealistic “Love Everybody” philosophy of Kenny.  “I think we both bring a balance to each other, no matter what the situation is. That’s what makes relationships good, when you have that dynamic,” says Big Kenny.


They have garnered multiple Grammy, ACM, CMA and CMT nominations and many best selling collections. They have trademarked the phrase “Redneck Riviera” and have founded a club, a line of boots and a whiskey under that name. Philanthropists, their Redneck Riviera Whiskey has paid for 37 college grants for family members of American Military killed or disabled in the line of duty.  

Their wish for their audience? “When they leave a Big & Rich concert, they should feel like they’ve just witnessed the greatest show on earth.”


Taking the stage with Big & Rich in Las Cruces is Cowboy Troy. Blending country and rap, Cowboy Troy, a 6’5” black rapper cowboy brings his “hick-hop” style to the stage. He is known as one of the more unusual performers on the Nashville scene and has been appearing with Big & Rich on stage and as a contributor on their recordings.
