Little Big Town Tell Their Story of Perseverance

LBT

Anyone who dreams of a country career can take inspiration from Little Big Town, who told their story of perseverance at CRS in Nashville this week.

“You can’t hold on to everything that doesn’t go your way in this business,” Karen Fairchild said. “Even if it didn’t work the first time, it will work.”

When the band’s second deal with Monument Records dissolved, Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet had to go back to non-music jobs. Westbrook told of seeing the band’s agent while working a gig parking cars, and pulling his hat down so the agent wouldn’t know it was him.

“When we started to have success with ‘Pontoon’ and we started winning awards, we did reflect back on the journey,” Westbrook said. “It was a beautiful thing to look at the people who believed in us and cry with them and say thank you.”

While opening for George Strait on a recent ‘Cowboy Rides Away’ Tour stop, Little Big Town checked an item off their bucket list when they shared the stage with the king of country to perform “You Look So Good in Love.” Check it out!

Little Big Town Released New Music Video for “Sober”

Check out Little Big Town‘s new music video for “Sober.”  This is the fourth single off their fifth album, Tornado.  The song, hits close to home for the band, especially Kimberly Schlapman who lost her first husband in 2005 to a heart attack.

“I have experienced what it means to lose the love of your life,” Schlapman tells PEOPLE. “And I’ve experience what it feels like to love again after great loss, so this song touches me so deeply in my heart.”

The band is currently working on their next album.

Keith Urban Bids Farewell to ‘Light the Fuse’ in Nashville

On Saturday, Keith Urban wrapped his Light the Fuse tour in Nashville with tour mates Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch, but those weren’t the only special guests. Eric Church and the legendary Peter Frampton also joined Keith on stage in a mind-blowing concert that no one wanted to end…including Keith.

Starting at 7pm on the dot, Dustin Lynch took the stage to get the crowd on it’s feet. Dustin has great stage presence, and isn’t afraid to get handsy with the crowd. There was a lot of hand holding and running back and forth across the stage while he performed “She Cranks My Tractor” and “Wild In Your Smile.” The crowd sang along with his hit single “Cowboys and Angels.”

Thanks to a super-fast set change, Little Big Town took the stage in no time. If you haven’t seen these four perform live, you’re doing yourself a great disservice. They had plenty of hits to fill their hour long set, and then some. We were treated to “Little White Church,” “Tornado,” “Pontoon,” “Your Side of the Bed,” “Sober,” an incredible bluesy version of The Oak Ridge Boys’ “Elvira” and of course “Boondocks.” These four could literally entertain just by singing the phone book.

Finally, at 9pm, it was the moment we’d all been waiting for. And unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Keith took the stage almost like a stage hand, just walked out with the house lights still on and started playing banjo. Suddenly the band a appeared and the curtain dropped and the show was in full swing, and it stayed that way for 2 and a half hours.  He went into the crowd, called fans on stage, and was much more chatty than ever before.

Sprinkled between his hits were special guests. Eric Church joined Keith on stage to perform “Raise ‘Em Up.” Keith invited Karen Fairchild to the stage to help him perform “We Were Us.” As a very special surprise, Peter Frampton joined Keith on stage to perform The Beatles tune, “Get Back.”

For the encore Keith decided to “wing it” and perform several songs on the piano and “Making Memories of Us” on his acoustic dedicating it to his wife who couldn’t be there.

It was an unbelievable night of great music. Keith was extra chatty and seemed to really enjoy performing his last show of the tour.

After the show, he hopped a plane to Morocco to visit with his wife Nicole Kidman who’s filming a movie there before heading to Los Angeles for “American Idol.”
