Big & Rich to Perform Saturday Night Concert at Talladega Superspeedway
Big & Rich featuring Cowboy Troy are bringing the party for one of the most anticipated Saturday Night Concerts ever at Talladega Superspeedway!
The country music giants will perform as part of the track’s spring race weekend, featuring the GEICO 500.
Think about, you're on the infield at Talladega, your friends are there and Big & Rich are on stage rolling through on hit after another: 'Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),' 'Comin' to Your City,' 'Look at You,' 'Lost in This Moment,' 'Loud,' among many others!
NASCAR’s Party Capital will absolutely rock on Saturday night, April 30th! The concert is FREE to anyone who has a ticket to the Sunday, May 1st GEICO 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in which Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is the defending champion.
Talladega Superspeedway chairman Grant Lynch said,
Big & Rich have such a huge following and having them here at Talladega is going to be something special for our fans. What a day we have in store for Saturday here at Talladega: NASCAR Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series qualifying and the Talladega 300, then that evening, we have Big & Rich. Incredible slate of activities, and to top it off, our fans get to see this epic group for FREE if they have a GEICO 500 ticket.
America's Technicolor cowboys, John Rich and Big Kenny Alphin are first-rate musicians, songwriters, producers and entertainers. Together, they are one of the most original musical forces ever unleashed on the industry. Exploding into the public consciousness in 2003 as true country music game changers, they released epic songs like "Comin to Your City," and "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” that elevated the group to superstar status. Their music displays incomparable range, with well-crafted songs about love, loss, patriotism and social issues that have impacted many people all across the world.
Their partner in crime, Cowboy Troy, will be right there as well, as the self-proclaimed “hick-hop” artist continues to amaze the masses with his own brand of southern, country-fried rap that has turned heads for years.
