Big & Rich Select Four Directors For Four Videos

Big & Rich.

Country music duo Big & Rich personally selected four different music video directors for four tracks off of their new album “Hillbilly Jedi.” Each director was challenged with only a week to finish their projects and with a very small budget to make it happen. They were challenged to be as creative as possible, and to show off each of their own visions to the tracks. The four directors given the challenge were the Edde Brothers, Ryan Hamblin, Kip Kubin, and Jeff Venable.

The four tracks chosen for the challenge are “Party Like Cowboys,” “Born Again,” “Lay It All On Me,” and “Cheat On You.” All directors were given total freedom by Big & Rich to complete their projects. The videos will premiere on CMT will “Hillbilly Hijack” on Friday, October 5th at 10 am CST.

The Xtreme Muzik Tour had a very special night at its stop at the Woods Amphitheater last night. The tour, which features Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson, brought Air Force veteran Shaun Meadows by bringing him on-stage. A member of the 22nd Special Tactics Squadron, Shaun lost his legs in 2008 while serving in Afghanistan. He was hit by an improvised explosive device while on a combat renaissance patrol. He became the first active-duty amputee in Air Force history to successfully perform a skydive last year.

Shaun was presented with Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson’s proceeds from the evening, as well as proceeds from Operation FINALLY HOME. As he was brought on the stage, a Jimi Hendrix styled “Star Spangled Banner” played and he was surprised with the news by his wife, son and local news anchor Jonathan Martin from WSMV. Goodall Homes has agreed to build the home alongside Nashville-based LP Building Products who will provide all the supplies necessary.

The Xtreme Muzik Tour continues this week through September and hits Nevada, Arizona, Utah, California, Oregon and Washington. The first leg of the tour wraps up in British Columbia, Canada.

Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson to Donate Proceeds from Xtreme Muzik The Tour

Xtreme Muzik The Tour, featuring co-headliners Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson has been a hit with audiences from coast to coast, and Big Kenny, John Rich and Gretchen Wilson will donate 100% of their proceeds from their September 2, 2011 date at The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel to Operation FINALLY HOME, a 501(c)3 organization that honors wounded and disabled veterans and widows of fallen soldiers with new homes.

“This is a wonderful organization I’ve worked with for years. They have a very simple but very important cause,” said Big Kenny, who first approached his touring partners about the idea. “Building a home is noble, but constructing a home tailored to the needs of a specific injury or disability is one of the things Operation FINALLY HOME really understands and has done well time and again.  It’s an honor for us all to have them working with us here in Music City. I’m willing to jump out of a perfectly good plane to raise awareness of the great needs of so many of our returning soldiers!”
