NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- John Rich of "Big & Rich" invited media to his home on Monday to unveil his new clothing line and information about the possibility of new music. But, you won't get any of those details here. FOX 17 arrived to the Rich home, only to be kicked out.

Why? 

According to a Rich staffer, FOX 17 was "uninvited" because he was "still upset" about an interview with Rich's alleged stalker Chris Sevier.

The two men have shared a long history of bad blood which include various legal battles. Sevier was charged with stalking Rich and ordered to wear a GPS tracking device in October of last year. He was ordered to keep away from the artist and warned not to mention Rich on social media platforms. 

Five months later, Rich is passing up the opportunity to help pitch his products. Whether it is a viable business decision we will leave up to you. And while it's not a good business decision for a news station to tell you to get the news on Rich's products elsewhere, we can tell you that is one story which will be ONLY "NOT" ON FOX 17.
