Those wacky Big & Rich boys have done it again. They recently shot a story for the current issue of Blender magazine that solidified their reputation as country's wild and crazy guys. It seems that Blender gave the guys $848 and told them to spend it however they wanted. What did they do? John Rich rented a chicken costume, while Big Kenny got pretty in a Carmen Miranda-style dress with jeans and sunglasses. And then they went to the San Antonio zoo. "Can you think of one other artist in country music who would do this?" asked Big Kenny. The article reported that one of the duo's highlights of the day was getting to pet Gertie, a two-ton rhinoceros. "This is the future of country!" said John Rich. "We want to welcome everyone back to country. And what says 'Come back to country' more than a man in a chicken suit stroking a rhinoceros?"
