Final: 1x03 -- Big & Rich and John Anderson (Mar/17/2007)

Country music legend John Anderson and MuzikMafia's modern country rockers Big & Rich unite to perform their biggest hits and favorite songs in CMT Cross Country. Taped in front of a live audience in Nashville, the episode features songs performed by both artists, including "Seminole Wind," "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," "Swingin'" and "8th of November," plus behind-the-scenes footage and interviews between Anderson, John Rich and Big Kenny.

Anderson and Big & Rich have a long musical history together. Rich first encountered Anderson in 1996 when, hoping to meet one of his idols, he knocked on Anderson's tour bus door. Nine years later, reconnected through producer Paul Worley, the two booked a songwriting session and have been playing and writing music together ever since. In 2005, Anderson accompanied Big & Rich for five stops on their Comin' to Your City tour. Together, they wrote and yielded songs that form the core of Anderson's new album, Easy Money, produced by Rich. In November 2006, John Rich and Big Kenny welcomed their honky-tonk hero into the MuzikMafia family.
