WE BE BIG - Rick Burgess and Bill Bussey

We Be Big: The Mostly True Story of How Two Kids from Calhoun County, Alabama, Became Rick and Bubba-By Rick Burgess and Bill Bussey with Don Keith. Now that is a title!

If you aren’t familiar with Rick and Bubba, they host a morning radio show in Alabama. 

The book is a very inspiring story as well as entertaining.  It reminds us that we can continue to trust in God as we sometimes struggle to make good choices in our life.

 For those readers who listen to the “Two Sexiest Fat Men Alive” on syndicated radio stations nationwide, the content of the book will be familiar as the guys quite often share the ups and downs of their lives on the air.  While reading the book, though, I found there are still lots of new stories especially about their childhood and the way the two came together that were new to me and I enjoyed reading.   I also liked how each wrote a chapter and then how their lives crossed at different times to the ultimate point when they became a radio team.

As with most, their walk with God has been a rocky one, even as they enjoyed the very height of fame, their faith was tested by a devastating loss.  In Rick Burgess’ own words, “None of us know if our faith is enough until tested; until something happens that we could never have anticipated.  Nor can we imagine how it might eventually affect us -  Us and so many.”

I found the story of two Christian Radio Jocks bringing the Word of God on a secular radio show while using their comic talents a good one.  The book will make you laugh and make you cry. Even if you have never heard of their show or of Rick and Bubba, the book is worth reading.
