The country duo, Big & Rich, reportedly is taking a break from touring in 2008. According to Billboard.com, the singers and writers of 'Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)' will put the tour on the side for at least half of 2008. Allegedly, the decision was taken because Big Kenny was suffering from his previous car accident.
To Billboard.com, John Rich revealed that Big is still experiencing an upsetting long-lasting effects of a car accident a few years back. He said, "It's killing him. At the CMA Awards [in November] it was all he could do to get out there and get through it. It was hard for him to even hold his arm up to play the guitar."
Rich then added, "The doctors are telling him that for all intents and purposes, he doesn't need to tour next year. They're going to put him through some real aggressive rehab for his neck." He also stated that with the off the road schedule, they will have time to "do a lot of stuff on the creative side."
Meanwhile, their first-ever Canadian tour, which will feature Canadians Terri Clark and Emerson Drive, will kick-off on January 9, 2008 at the CN Centre in Prince George, British Columbia, and will wrap on January 21 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Aside from the tour news, in July, the American duo scored their first #1 Hot Country Songs hit with 'Lost in This Moment', while their third album 'Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace', which was released in June 2007, debuted at number 1 on Top Country Albums.
