Big Country is back



Bigcountry The words would have once seemed impossible to put together, but here it is: Big Country is back together and making new music.

The Scottish band so big in the 80s with hits including "In a Big Country" and "Fields of Fire" had been considered retired for good after the 2001 death of lead singer Stuart Adamson. But the band has reformed with founding members Bruce Watson, Tony Butler and Mark Brzezicki reuniting. (Butler takes on the lead vocal chores now.)

A new live album -- "Twenty Five Live" -- has been released, and the band has toured the U.K. to support the new disc. A new single -- "You Lift Me Up" -- also has been released. (Go to the band's MySpace page to listen.)

What could be next ... a new studio album? A world tour? Keep a close eye on the band's official website for developments.
