John Rich, well-known as half of the duo Big & Rich, not to mention his many hits in the world of song-writing, stopped by our Pickin’ Parlor Friday. He was as personable as they come, sharing laughs and stories about his family and life as an artist. Here’s what we learned:

John compares changing a diaper to working on a Nascar pit crew. He’s quick. Mainly because ‘I don’t wanna get peed on.’

John says a typical day for him when he’s not busy is picking some peppers from his garden and preparing a meal.

John dresses himself, and selects his own clothes, most of which have been custom-made.

No, John’s 9-month old baby, Cash, does NOT sleep through the night.

John is heavily impressed with artists like Zac Brown, Dierks Bentley and Lee Brice.

John selected the bikini-clad women on his new album cover, saying casting that gig was ‘a tough job.’

John’s wife chooses to stay home, rather than hit the road with her hubby, and John proudly showed us pics of Cash on his cell phone. (He looks like Momma!)

And that’s a wrap.
