Country singer John Rich will perform “Raisin’ McCain,” his original rock-infused anthem in support of Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain, at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, MN, on September 3. Rich is also slated to perform “Our America” with Gretchen Wilson and Cowboy Troy at the convention.

Prior to the Republican political gathering, Rich will make special guest appearances with Senator McCain at two official campaign events: Road to the Convention rallies outside of Pittsburgh, PA, on August 30; and outside of St. Louis, MO, on August 31 to fire up voters and offer his endorsement of McCain, building up to the nominating convention.

Rich wrote the music and lyrics to “Raisin’ McCain” as a “fight song” to energize Americans and declare his support. The song celebrates McCain’s maverick spirit and is a call-to-action for all Americans to exercise their right to vote. “Raisin’ McCain” is available to the public for free download at Rich’s Web site.

Rich is a singer, award-winning songwriter and acclaimed producer. The Texas native is best known as one half of the duo Big & Rich. Additionally, Rich served as a judge and mentor on NBC’s music competition series “Nashville Star” and has returned as the host and judge of CMT’s “Gone Country 2.”
