With strong melodies and their magical ability to replicate bagpipe sounds on an electric guitar, Big Country was a unique presence on the early '80s rock scene. Their debut album, The Crossing
, was a huge hit, going gold in America on the strength of the Top 20 single, "In a Big Country." Their passionate performances and arrangements inspired by the music of their native Scotland turned heads both in the UK and the US and The Crossing
earned three GRAMMY award nominations. The death of frontman Stuart Anderson in 2001 was an enormous blow to the band, but in 2011 they were ready to return and 30 years after the band's creation, Big Country was back in a big way and they haven't stopped -- they released their latest album The Journey
in April 2013 and are currently on tour across the globe.
