class=img_thumbleft>I just took a look at the two versions of the new Big & Rich video, both of which make it difficult to evaluate the single. One is a live clip heavy on crowd- and background noise. The other pursues a outer-space conceit, not as charmingly goofy as one might hope, and is heavy on sound effects. The song, "Comin' to Your City," (pronounced "Ci-tay," as on "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," last year's greatest single) is an arena rocker about touring. It's no "We're an American Band." But I do like the disco breakdown, and I look forward to hearing it freed from the videos' various distractions. The album, also called Comin' to Your City
comes out on November 15, and the group plays with Gretchen Wilson and Cowboy Troy at the Xcel Energy Center on November 27. You can check out two video versions of the new Big & Rich single here.
