Live a Little is the first solo album by American singer Big Kenny, prior to his joining John Rich in the duo Big & Rich. Recorded in 1999 for Hollywood Records, the album was not released until 2005, after Big & Rich had released their debut album. Its release coincided with the release of Rich's previously-unreleased debut album , also recorded in 1999 and released in 2006. Unlike Kenny's work within the Underneath the Same Moon country music genre with Big & Rich, Live a Little is a mixture between rock and pop. This album was followed by in 2009 and The Quiet Times of a Rock and Roll Farm Boy in 2010. Big Kenny's Love Everybody Traveling Musical Medicine Show Mix Tape, Vol. 1 [2 ]
The track "I Pray for You" (listed here as "Pray for You") was also recorded by Rich on
Underneath the Same Moon, and was a minor chart single for him in 2000. Kenny re-recorded the song in 2005 with Rich for their second album as a duo, . Comin' to Your City
