Outdoor Fireworks Concert: Little Big Town
Sponsored by Blue Ridge Electric Membership Corporation
Performance Sponsorship by Goodnight Brothers
Music Video of the Year. Single of the Year. Vocal Group of the Year. These are just a few of the CMA and ACM awards country powerhouse, Little Big Town, has won in the past three years!
Little Big Town joins An Appalachian Summer Festival as the headliner for the Outdoor Fireworks Concert on June 28 in Kidd Brewer Stadium. Comprised of singers Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, this chart-topping group is famous for their trademark four-part harmonies.
Releasing hits such as “Little White Church,” “Tornado,” “Boondocks,” and their 2012 CMA Single of the Year, “Pontoon,” Little Big Town has sold 1.5 million records and racked up multiple CMA, ACM and Grammy nominations throughout their 13 year career.
Little Big Town has been soaking in the successes of their most recent album, Tornado. “I think ‘edge’ is a word that gets overused,” singer Karen Fairchild says. “But this record does have a raw edge to it.” “It has a really different vibe to it,” fellow member Jimi Westbrook agrees “It doesn’t sound like anything else on the radio right now.”
What the press is saying
“Tornado seems designed to demonstrate that stardom hasn’t separated the band from the backwoods roots it famously celebrated in the song ‘Boondocks.’” - Billboard
“Tornado does turn out to be Little Big Town’s least predictable album.” - New York Times
“The lead single [“Pontoon”] is just one of the gems to be discovered on this fine album.” - Country Weekly
