Friday, July 27, 2007
– Big & Rich celebrated their first number one single, "Lost In This Moment," Wednesday in Nashville.
The song was written by John Rich, Keith Anderson and Rodney Clawson.
Big Kenny said, "Thank you everyone. There are a lot of people here who have put good hard work, time and energy into John Rich's and my career-the career of Big & Rich."
Rich said, "The first time Kenny and I really performed together in front of people was at MuzikMafia on Tuesday night at the Pub Of Love, and we want to thank the MuzikMafia for that. Thanks to radio for coming on board and giving us this number one, and thanks to Gator Michaels and all the regionals that have burnt the tires off their cars to take us to these stations. And honestly, thanks to Bill Bennett for letting us scream at him a few times and not throwing us out of here."
Bennett, Warner Records, Executive Vice President, responded, "I want to thank you guys for not having fear and for creating music that crosses over boundaries. You are not afraid to take chances, and nowadays we need artists to take those leaps of faith. Congratulations on the number one single - you guys deserve it and deserve many more in the future."

Either they're partying like there's no tomorrow, as happens during Cowboyz, or they are the preacher's pets, exemplified by That's Why I Pray. But can these lustful 'Cause I Play Guitar guys, be the same ones that singer tender ballads like Last Words? Apparently so. It's the whole Saturday night vs. Sunday morning paradox, one supposes. ...
Thoroughly unafraid to lead the freak parade for the better part of this decade, Big Kenny and John Rich have repeatedly demonstrated their range in each of their three studio albums, giving voice to tender ballads alongside their over-the-top party hits. That range is well-showcased here.
As is often the case with hits collections, the way you feel about this album will be directly related to how you feel about Big and Rich, a duo that has served to divide the country community between those ...
