They hail from Nashville, Tenn., but earlier this week, country music's Big&Rich made it's way from "Music City," to "The City That Never Sleeps," for a primetime interview with Piers Morgan.
Sitting together face to face for their first interview together in more than five years, the topic quickly turns from vocals to voting, as the host attempted to label "Big Kenny" a liberal.
"I don't even know what that is," says the 48-year-old singer and songwriter. "What I know is I'm a farm boy, raised in Virginia, to a dad who is a hard-working man and a mother who taught me music and gave me great lessons in life."
For John Rich, meanwhile, there is no gray area within his political identity:
"Yes, I'm a conservative," he states emphatically.
As for his his partner?
"I would categorize Kenny as an independent, actually."
Independent or not, Kenny believes in the Democratic process, and the importance of going to the polls. He just doesn't like to talk about whose ticket he punched the last time around:
"Did you vote for Obama?" inquires the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host.
"I don't think that's proper for you to even ask that," comes the response.
But as the awkwardness builds, Rich lightens the mood:
"In all fairness, Piers can't even vote," quips the 38-year-old native of Texas.
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in at 9 p.m. to see what prompted "Big Kenny" to rise from his chair, and hug the host, while Morgan nervously pleaded for a commercial break.
