Little Big Town’s landmark year to date includes the release of their chart-topping album “The Breaker” in February, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 All Genre chart. It was also the group’s fifth ACM Award win as Vocal Group of the Year. Additionally, the multi-platinum-selling country band was recently inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame and earned their 26th career CMA Award nomination, including nominations for Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year, and Music Video of the Year.

One of the most well-respected and beloved entertainers in music today, the genre-defying group has “expanded their audience beyond Tennessee” (USA Today) as well as “the definition of country music from the inside” (Newsday) since first entering the music scene more than 18 years ago. Their critically acclaimed album “The Breaker,” as well as their recent headlining Ryman Residency “Little Big Town at the Mother Church,” have garnered the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year praise for their four-part harmonies and progressive sound that “seems to get even better with time” (Forbes).

Hailed as a “21st century revival of Fleetwood Mac” (Goldderby), they have produced hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It on Home,” “Good as Gone,” and “Little White Church,” as well as their No. 1 singles “Pontoon,” “Tornado,” “Day Drinking” and, most recently, the history-making bestselling country single of 2015, “Girl Crush,” and this year’s multi-week No. 1 single “Better Man.”
