BIG & RICH, GRETCHEN WILSON RAISE COLD, HARD CASH--WITH ONE HOT CAR

When Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich--Big Kenny and John Rich--were in Crested Butte, Col., recently for the annual "Country in the Rockies" cancer research benefit, Big Kenny, a licensed auctioneer in a former life, had a chance to call upon his fast-talking skills to raise some serious cash. Chevrolet donated a 2005 Corvette Z06 to the event's live auction, and Big Kenny got the excited crowd to top the $100,000 mark -- going all the way to $115,000 before the bidding stopped. Kenny, John and Gretchen all bid on the gorgeous car, with Gretchen coming closest to driving home in the Vette with a final bid of $92,000.
