John Rich

  • Born Jan. 7, 1974, in Amarillo, Texas, John Rich first found mainstream success in the country band Lonestar as its bassist and occasional lead singer.
  • But after recording two albums with the band, they parted ways in 1998.
  • Rich remained on BNA Records as a solo artist, but his first two singles failed to crack the Top 40, and the label did not release the album.
  • After becoming somewhat disillusioned with the music industry, Rich co-founded a collective of musical outsiders known as the MuzikMafia, which began playing in the small Nashville bar called the Pub of Love.
  • His like-minded companions included "Big Kenny" Alphin, Gretchen Wilson, James Otto and Jon Nicholson.
  • When Rich teamed with Big Kenny to form Big & Rich, they caught everybody by surprise with a double-platinum debut, thanks to the hit, "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)."
  • Rich also co-wrote Wilson's anthem, "Redneck Woman," as well as "Here for the Party" and "When I Think About Cheatin'."
  • His writing career continued to explode with cuts by Jason Aldean, Faith Hill, Wynonna and many others.
  • In 2006, BNA finally released Rich's solo album, Underneath the Same Moon. Guests included Alphin, Sara Evans, the Fairfield Four and Delbert McClinton.
