Big and Rich – Then and Now
A decade has changed a few things about rowdy country hitmakers Big and Rich. Big Kenny looks more distinguished these days, with a few time lines etched into his oft-smiling face, and both men have filled out. The outfits they chose in the nearly 10 years between these two pictures are very, very different.
Was it cool to wear flamingo pink in the early-to-mid-00s? And what marching band drum major did Big Kenny beat up to get his look for this press junket? Of course, Big and Rich’s outrageous style is what made them so popular so quickly. They were — and still very much are — originals in country music. Both have adopted more contemporary styles in recent years, perhaps a result of a marriage. To his credit, Alphin was recently inducted into the Tennessee State Museum as a style trendsetter.
