A "Big and Rich" Country Star Makes a Stop in Owego

A country star paid a visit to a shop full of fans in Owego today.

Before heading off to preform live, John Rich, of Big and Rich, held a meet and greet at the Redneck Boot Shop and Western Wear. The store is the only shop in New York State to carry his Redneck Riviera boots.

"I think it's fantastic. It shows that he supports small businesses like us. And I think it means a lot for our community," said Co-Owner, Redneck Boot Shop & Western Wear Irene White.

"I don't think people think of New York a lot of the time as a big country music fan base. But some of our biggest shows and biggest fan bases are in New York and out in the countryside right here. It's incredible," said Big and Rich's John Rich.

Big and Rich played at Tioga Downs Sunday night to wrap up its Summer Concert Series.
