Musical Interlude: 8th of November (2009)

Big & Rich might come off as a couple of modern-day party boys, but they can also bring the serious in their music.

One such example is "8th of November", which tells the story of a 1965 incident in Vietnam as seen through the eyes of a man who lived through it all. Today being Veteran's Day, this song is rather appropriate. Actor-singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson, who would later appear in John Rich's solo video for "Shutting Detroit Down", provides the intro.
