Big & Rich to play Waterfront Concert’s annual Jingle Jam, Dec. 11 in Lewiston

bigandrichWaterfront Concerts announced on Tuesday morning that country music duo Big & Rich, pictured at left, will play the annual country-themed holiday show the Jingle Jam at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston on Thursday, Dec. 11, with guest Danielle Bradbery.

Tickets for the Jingle Jam at the Colisee will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 17 via waterfrontconcerts.com, Ticketmaster, by calling 1-800-745-3000 or in person at Mark’s Music in Brewer.

Big & Rich is composed of Big Kenny and John Rich both of whom are songwriters, vocalists, and guitarists. Rich was a founding member of the country music band Lonestar, while Big Kenny was formerly a solo artist. Their 2004 breakthrough single “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” was a major radio hit that even spawned crossover success of mainstream radio. Other successful singles included “8th of November,” “Lost in This Moment” and “That’s Why I Pray.” Their newest album, “Gravity,” came out earlier this year.

Danielle Bradbery was, at 18, the youngest person to ever win “The Voice,” the NBC singing competition series, which Bradbery won during season four over the winter of 2013. She has since had two successful country singles, include “The Heart of Dixie” and “Young in America.” She has toured with Hunter Hayes, Scotty McCreery and Brad Paisley.

This is the third edition of the Christmas-themed country music-centic Jingle Jam, held annually at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston. Last year’s concert featured Craig Morgan, Jana Kramer and Unkle Kracker; in 2011 it featured Rodney Atkins and Kellie Pickler.
