Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild Launches Clothing Line at Macy’s This Month


This month, Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild launched her new clothing line Fair Child in select Macy’s stores across the country and on

Fair Child follows the same masterful mix of glamorous and effortless design that Karen lives by on and off of the stage. From a luxe overcoat, vest, and biker jacket, to the essential basics of a great t-shirt, vegan faux-leather skinnies, and feminine blouses, Fair Child is everything that is easy to wear, but full of personality. For Karen, fashion is the most fun when it has an element of surprise, and Fair Child reinvents and adapts that “of the moment” style of dressing.

“The real reason I’m making clothes is because I like clothes…I love clothes,” said Fairchild. “Outside of writing songs and performing, it’s definitely my passion. I view it a lot like telling a story in a song. I think an outfit tells a story, and I think when there’s something interesting or surprising or a little twist, that’s what makes a great song and it’s the same thing that makes a great outfit. I’m so grateful to Macy’s for giving me this opportunity.”

Fair Child, with pieces priced from $39 to $149, is currently available on, and at select Macy’s stores in Atlanta (Town Center at Cobb), Austin (The Domain), Chicago (Water Tower Place), Columbus (Tuttle Crossing), Dallas (Northpark Center), Denver (Park Meadows), Detroit (Somerset Collection), Kansas City (Town Center Plaza), Memphis (Wolfchase Galleria) and Nashville (Green Hills).

Sam Hunt Rocks the Carnival Live Stage With a Crazy Fun and High Energy Performance


CMTT set sail with #CarnivalLive last week for the Sam Hunt concert that took place in their Spectacular Theater on board Carnival Splendor.  As we have told you in the past (here and here), there is nothing better than seeing your favorite artists in an up close and intimate setting like a cruise ship can give you!  There is not a bad seat in the house and Sam gave fans one of the best and definitely most fun stage performances I have seen from him yet.

Sam was obviously in vacation mode right along with his fans.  He was very laid back shining his bright smile at us constantly as he brought high energy from the moment he stepped on stage.  Sam entertained fans with all of their favorites like “Leave the Light On,” “Take Your Time” and “Break up in a Small Town.”  But a great surprise happened when he and his band treated us to a great medley of songs by other country artists that included Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried,” Maren Morris’ “My Church” Thomas Rhett’s “T-shirt” and Old Dominions’ “Snapback.”


Fans got up close and personal with the star as he walked the isles of the cruise ship theater handing out high fives.

Before the show Sam sat down with media for a quick Q&A session.  The question at the top of everyone’s list was, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET NEW MUSIC?????  Sam was happy to answer admitting “I do feel pressure internally and externally to put out music.”   But he also admitted that was exciting to him!

 “I love song writing and this brings me back to why I got into music in the first place so I am excited about that.”

Although we did not get an exact date for a new album Sam did say he is currently working on new music adding,

“I’m trying to figure out how to be efficient as a songwriter with the new obligations and a new lifestyle that prevents me from being as free to write.  I am sort of figuring that all out but it’s coming along.  I don’t want to rush it.”

Sam also told us that he would love to write all of the songs on the upcoming album.

“I plan on writing everything.  My hope is that the next record, I wanna be even more vulnerable and more honest than I was on the first record.   That is going to obviously require me to write the songs if I am going to tap into my own life and really if I want that record to reflect real experiences in my life.  That is something that I want to do.”

I really admired how personal Sam talked about the music he writes.  You can tell when he speaks he wants it to mean something and he made that clear when he talked about the pressure to put out a new music,

“There is some pressure from the label, I feel like maybe I’m putting it on myself.  But that is part of their job, they have a business that they run and it’s based off of putting music out and making money so I get that.   But I won’t ever let that influence the way I go about creating the music.”

Sam Hunt fans everywhere can get excited because Sam also hinted that we may get new music before the album is ready for release.

“I’m just going to up to put music out when I feel like it ready.  I’ve got a few songs that I’m excited about that I’m going to put out even if that is a long time before the next record comes out.”

My favorite part of the Q&A session with Sam was when he happily answered two very important questions from my kids.  My daughter wanted to know what is favorite color is.  Instead of just answering with a quick answer he explained why he liked his favorite color,

“My favorite color is red.  I am from GA, we’ve got the Bulldogs so I think it probably comes from that but also my high school mascot were the Bulldogs so we were red and black as well.  And it’s a good strong color.  I’m a big fan of red.”

And when my son wanted to know what is favorite food is he answered with a giggle,

“My favorite food, if I had to pick just one food item to have all the time I think it would be peanut butter.  I don’t know why.  It’s just my go to and the one thing that will satisfy my hunger no matter what.  I am never not in the mood for peanut butter.”

Little Big Town Releases New Single “Better Man” – Listen


Little Big Town has been hinting at something on their social media for a week or two now, and finally the big secret has been revealed. The group’s new single, “Better Man” is available now. Click here to download.

“Everybody can identify with the sentiment of this song. A lot of times in life, there are things that you have to walk away from that don’t necessarily feel like the greatest decision to have to make in your life, but sometimes you just know that it’s time to move on, and no matter how hard that is, you just know down in your heart that it’s time to do that. And those are very difficult decisions that we face sometimes in our lives, and I think this song talks about that beautifully,” they tell tell Q102.

“Every project has personality, every record has personality, and this one, we’ve [had] this stack of songs that we’ve been working on for a long time, and we’ve been fortunate enough to have a lot of great writers send us incredible songs, and also, to write with them, and collaborate [with]. So getting back in the studio, it’s always like, what do you lead the record with? What do you come out with as a first song? We had several songs in the running for that, but then as soon as we recorded ‘Better Man’, we knew that it should be first. Storytelling, harmony, beautiful memorable melody, and one that I think you can’t get out of your head.”

Take a listen and tell us what you think.

I have to tell you, I love it.
