If it’s all you ever really wanted to do, then why not paint yourself in a corner and do it Big Time.” The Bourquin brothers have spent their lives doing music thru different avenues, but it wasn’t until they came together to form Big Time Grain Company that they made a commitment to themselves, each other and their families to play all out. There would be no option for failure.
The music continues to pour out with the heartbeat of a western Kansas farmstead upbringing. On a few occasions as kids, their dad asked them if they planned on taking over the farm. Both boys, grateful for the work ethic and character that farm life brought declined and followed their ultimate passion of music. With years of country and folk music in their heritage, it’s no surprise that following the rock years they returned the their roots that used to infiltrate every holiday post meal jam session with guitars, fiddles, banjos, mandolin and more.
Today Big Time Grain Company is one of the fastest rising country bands in the midwest. This act was chosen to perform at the Royal’s World Series Celebration Rally for a 500,000 plus crowd at Union Station. Recently a BTGC song was featured on a nationwide NFL broadcast of a Chiefs/Raider’s game. In addition the group has opened for Big & Rich, Restless Heart, Brother’s Osborne, Gary Allan, Dan and Shay, Travis Tritt, Chase Bryant, JoDee Messina, Los Lobos and many more booked in 2017 as well as headlining many festivals all over middle America.
“I feel better then when I got here” is quite often heard following a Big Time Grain Company show which lines up perfectly with the brother’s vision of making a difference in people’s lives one show, one song and one hand shake at a time.
