Wilson, Big & Rich, Cowboy Troy reunite for tour.

Monday, February 12, 2024 – Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich and Cowboy Troy are touring together for a 20-th anniversary tour.

This is a continuation of the MuzikMafia, the movement founded in 2001, in part, by Big & Rich. The loose confederation of musicians was considered against the mainstream. "The movement, a force to be reckoned with, changed the course of country music," says John Rich of Big & Rich.

The shows start Feb. 23 at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo.

"Reuniting for the 20th Anniversary Celebration Tour feels like coming home," said Big & Rich. "The energy and camaraderie that defined the movement are as alive as ever, and we can't wait to share that with our fans."

Wilson, "I'm not sure if it's the smile on Kenny's face, the fire in John's eyes, or the red of my neck, but something tells me this year's 20th anniversary is gonna be epic."

Feb. 23 - San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, San Antonio, TX

CD review - Gravity Was it all their fault? It's been 10 years since Big & Rich injected a modern twist on the country sound on to the charts. The monster hit from their debut record, "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)", never did reach number 1, but it sure seemed inescapable in 2004. Since then all of the duo's antics that seemed daring then -- from hip hop experimentation to raucous rock shows celebrating a never ending party ethic - these things don't just feel like the fringes of ...
CD review - Christmas in My Heart Although Gretchen Wilson produced this new holiday album for Redneck Records, thank goodness our famous redneck woman didn't attempt a redneck Christmas album. The closest she gets to being redneck-y is by appearing as a shotgun-wielding gal tied up in Christmas lights inside the CD booklet. Oh, and If You See Rudolph is a bit of a hunting song, which true rednecks will appreciate. While Wilson produced the 10-track release, she did not write any of its songs. On the secular/sacred scale, ...
This has been a busy year for country's original "redneck girl": Gretchen Wilson released an album of original songs, "Right on Time," in April, led by the single Still Rollin', and her first Christmas album, "Christmas in My Heart," hit the shelves in October. In between, she climbed "Under the Covers" with Rod Stewart and the Faces, Jackson Browne, Led Zeppelin and Derek and the Dominoes, among others, for a night on the town singing classic rock songs. ...
