If you’ve ever started your day with Rick and Bubba, you know the unmistakable drawl of those two crazy Alabama boys. What you may not know is that they almost weren’t “Rick and Bubba.”

From their glory days of homemade “radio stations,” youthful athletic ambition, and redneck Shakespearean monologues, Rick and Bubba spent decades working out the personalities you hear today on their syndicated morning talk show. Born in a little studio behind a skating rink, The Rick and Bubba Show filled the airwaves with a voice never before heard on morning radio.

We Be Big follows the winding road that led Rick Burgess and Bill “Bubba” Bussey onto the right path after years of missing the off-ramp. Find out how what started as a comedy routine evolved into a genuine conversation that more than 3.5 million people listen in on each week; and learn all the stories behind Rick and Bubba’s famous on-air hijinks, times of uncertainty, and unwavering faith in the face of tragedy.

Meet the two “sexiest fat men alive,” and experience the hilarity and heartbreak of their unforgettable story.
