Big & Rich are America's Technicolor cowboys, brothers-in-arms in service to the creed that great music has no boundaries. Individually, John and Big Kenny are first-rate musicians, songwriters, producers, entertainers—and now the creative force behind their own label imprint, Big & Rich Records. Together, they are one of the most truly original musical forces ever unleashed on a welcoming world. Big & Rich have made a career of being relatable and musically relevant since exploding into the public consciousness in 2003 as the rarest of breeds— true country music game changers. With 2004’s triple-platinum “Horse of a Different Color,” they were able to tap into the best strands of a wide spectrum of popular music, filter them through their pens and voices and produce a sound that is instantly recognizable, if not The best

Joe Diffie songs capture what was undeniably fun about mainstream country music in the ‘90s, but it’s his stage presence that makes him legendary. The Grand Ole Opry member and Grammy winner has lived the full creative cycle of a veteran country singer. With notable Hits including Prop Me Up Beside The Jukebox (If I Die,) Ships That Don’t Come In, Pickup Man,  John Deere Green, Bigger Than The Beatles, Third Rock From The Sun, Honky Tonk Attitude, and Just A Regular Joe, just to name a few.

Diffie's greatest hits aged well, allowing him to be a nostalgic choice for long-time country music fans and a worthwhile discovery for anyone curious about Jason Aldean's guitar heroes -- a journey that leads to party boy anthem I'm Love With a Capital ‘U’.

Get to know the guys in their own words:

JOHN RICH: “In the pursuit of the American Dream, if you want something, think hard, work hard, and go after it. There’s no guarantee you’re going to get it, but the fact you’re allowed to pursue it is where you should find your happiness.”

BIG KENNY: “I want to be a fun and entertaining positive voice and entity in my community, in my country, and in the world. I hope people know that those are the things that are important to me. And when they leave a Big & Rich concert, they should feel like they’ve just witnessed the greatest show on earth.”

JOE DIFFIE: “The best advice I ever got was from my dad,” Diffie recalls with a smile. “He said, ‘If you don’t have a goal, you don’t have anything to shoot at. Do something every day towards your music. Write a song or play your guitar.’ I took that to heart and made sure I did something every day whether it was big or little. I remember getting out of bed one time because I had forgotten to do something towards my music. I actually got up, got my guitar and played for a few minutes and then went back to bed. I feel like that had something to do with the success that I’ve managed to achieve. I think it would apply in anything. I lived, breathed, ate and slept music all the time. I was so obsessed with it.”

THE VAN WERT COUNTY FAIR GATE PASS IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE CONCERT TICKET PRICE.
