John Rich, one part of country duo Big & Rich, is taking sometime off from the band to record a solo album. Details on the album are still scarce but it is known that a lead single is scheduled for a Summer release.

Apparently, Rich decided to keep the creative juice flowing while his singing partner, Big Kenny is recovering from his injury that resulted from a car accident few years ago. "If anyone knows me, they know I'm always writing music," said the singer who is also assisting Jessica Simpson and Jewel Kilcher on their first country albums.

He added, "When we decided to take this year off so Kenny could focus on rehabilitation for a pre-existing injury, I asked Kenny if he was cool with me recording a solo project. I would only do this with Kenny's blessing. So, this year you can expect a solo record from me, but Big & Rich will be back in 2009!"

There is still no title or release date for the Warner Bros Nashville album.

my husband and I really like John & Kenny we met them in Palm Springs and my husband was on the flight with Kenny the next day when Kenny and Cowboy Troy were flying home, they had a lot fun at the airport. We miss Kenny and hope he recovers fast so we can see them both on tour again. Best of everything to both of you.
