“When looking for an act that would grace the stage of our venue for the first time, we knew we wanted a band that would provide an unforgettable night of up-beat entertainment and would be fun for music lovers,” said Mountain America Center’s General Manager Erik Hudson. “If you’ve never been to a Big & Rich show, you know that they bring the party! The energy in the building will be electric and we hope that the entire community comes out to celebrate this momentous occasion in Idaho Falls!”

Individually, John Rich and Big Kenny are first-rate musicians, songwriters, producers, and entertainers. Together, Big & Rich have made a career of being relatable and musically relevant since 2003 as true country music game changers.
