John Rich auctions his wheels

Thursday, August 2, 2007 – Looking for a new set of wheels with a country connection? Try John Rich's Corvette.

But having the chance to drive away will depend on whether winning an auction on eBay with a price tag of at least $50,000. "Anything over the book value is being donated to Vanderbilt's Childrens Hospital," according to a publicist at Warner Records, the label for which Big & Rich records.

Rich is selling a 2005 Corvette with 17,800 miles on it. The vehicle description states, "Ever wanted to get around town like a rock star? Here's your chance! Own John Rich's loaded, black Corvette. Hardtop Coupe, 6.0L V8 SFI. Celebrity guest drivers have included Gretchen Wilson and Kid Rock. Featured in Fall 2005 issue of Corvette Quarterly and CMT shows."

As of Thursday night, there were no bidders. The auction ends Aug. 8.

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. ...
CD review - Greatest Hits 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 ...
