L-R: Christiev Alphin, Kenny Alphin, Lois Riggins-Ezzel (State Museum Executive Director)

Virginia native Big Kenny Alphin, a successful songwriter, artist and rock n’ roll farm boy is one half of the dynamic, award-winning country duo, Big & Rich.  Just as Big Kenny exploded on the music scene with the hit song, “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy,” his rock- regal-pirate-cowboy image blended through all music genres and this naturally made him a style icon.

The 6’4″, fun- loving, talented philanthropist is known for his head turning top hats, renewing the trend with farm boy rock n’ class. Widely known as the “Universal Ambassador of Love,” Big Kenny’s style mantra is: Rule # 1, have fun! Always wear confidence & humility first. It’s not the height of fashion… but the stature of a man one is measured by.

Big Kenny has been inducted into the Tennessee State Museum as a style trendsetter.
