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!
