Rick Burgess and Bill “Bubba” Bussey

Rick & Bubba are featured daily on “The Rick & Bubba Show,” one of America’s fastest growing morning shows carried live on over 55 radio stations. The show is clean, family-oriented, and addresses relationships, marriage, religion, politics, family life, and current events with a slice of unique humor.


The two became friends while working at their college’s radio station. After college, they pursued separate careers and Bill ended up as chief engineer for a station in Gadsden, Ala. When management was looking for a new morning man, Bill recommended Rick. They began to create ideas together for Rick’s show which resulted in Bill joining the broadcast to read Shakespeare in a bit called “Good Ole Boy Theater.” The bit was a huge hit and soon “Bubba” (Bill) was sitting in for a few minutes a day and then the entire show! Rick & Bubba soon moved to WYSF in Birmingham, which gave them a wider audience, provided them more possibilities, and created a foundation for the future.

Rick & Bubba are the New York Times best-selling authors of Rick & Bubba’s Expert Guide to God, Country, Family, and Anything Else We Can Think Of… (Thomas Nelson 2006) and The Rick & Bubba Code (Thomas Nelson 2007). Rick and Bubba for President and Rick & Bubba’s Big Honkin’ Book of Huntin’ were published by Thomas Nelson in 2008, and Rick and Bubba’s Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage was published by Thomas Nelson in 2009. Rick and Bubba also provide the voices for Iggy and Ziggy in the Max Lucado animated series, “Hermie and Friends.”
