Big & Rich’s Big Kenny Appears in Monster’s Super Bowl LII Commercial
While country music fans are getting their snacks ready for the big game on Sunday (Feb. 4), they might want to make a note to keep an eye out for a fun appearance from Big & Rich's own Big Kenny during the famous run of Super Bowl commercials.
Kenny is shown in a teaser (above) advertising Monster—which is a high-performance personal audio company (not the energy drink or the job website). The mysterious clip shows him grooving on a sidewalk, and according to a press release, he'll be joined in the commercial by an impressive cast of A-list artists.
The spot will feature the song "Savior," by Iggy Azalea and featuring Quavo; and will also feature Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, hip-hop artist Yo Gotti, *NSYNC's Joey Fatone, songwriter and producer Poo-Bear, reality TV star and entrepreneur Jonathan Cheban, radio host and TV personality Charlamagne tha God, DJ Irie and YouTube star RiceGum.
Keep an eye out for the commercial toward the end of the game. The spot will reportedly air during the second national advertising break of the game's fourth quarter. If you just can't wait to find out more, check here for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the commercial.
There's more fun for country fans during Super Bowl LII, too. Carrie Underwood's much-anticipated and talked-about song "The Champion" will open the game. Blake Shelton will be hyping up the new season of The Voice in a funny spot with his fellow coaches. And, Jon Pardi cut a new version of the classic "I Like Beer" for a Michelob Ultra commercial (he doesn't appear on camera, but you can hear the tune).
