Jason Aldean is the reigning male vocalist of the year and has acquired a huge collection of awards over the last few years. He deserves all the accolades he has received with his endless touring and making killer record after killer record.
John Rich has been an influential figure in country music the 90's when he was part of the group Lonestar. He left the band in the late 90's and did the solo thing before hooking up with Big Kenny to form Big & Rich.
I have always found John Rich to be one of the more interesting and powerful men in country music. I have a lot of respect for John and was really excited when I found out we were getting to interview him today.
