Big & Rich seem to have something figured out with their career right now. They’re not working with the big labels anymore.
Instead, they put out an album about three years ago and in those three years they put one single each year in the top 15 on the radio charts.
That’s the best run on the charts for this duo and it’s impressive that they’ve done it on their own. Being on the radio definitely keeps them in front of country fans and probably selling more tickets out on the road.
It looks like they have a new single ready for 2017 and the album comes out later this year.
California – Big & Rich
Over the last few years Big & Rich have definitely shown their ability to play just about any type of country song. They’re known for they’re rocking songs, but they’ve also known for just about any kind of song. That’s been their niche. They aren’t afraid to try things.
With this new song they’re putting a catchy little melody on a song that really has a sad story. You have a guy that really cares about this girl, but she’s in love with California. She’s ready to head back out there. The guy loves her, but his life is where he’s living right now. He can’t follow her.
So that’s the story going on with this one. It’s definitely sad and that’s the feeling you get, but that melody is really pretty catchy. That’s why I think this one should definitely have a nice climb into the top 15 on the radio chart.
