Little Big Town On Being Back In The UK And Running From The Law – Interview

amy lbt

Amy Westney with Little Big Town, October 6th, 2015.

On Tuesday Little Big Town returned to the UK to play a one off show at London’s Brooklyn Bowl in support of the C2C 2016 launch. I for one couldn’t been happier when I heard they were coming back over. With their finely tuned harmonies and their catalogue of hits I knew it wouldn’t be a show to miss! You can read our review of the live performance HERE.

As many of you may be aware I am a musician myself and this amazing vocal harmony band were one of the first that I discovered when I got into country music a little over 10 years ago. They have been a huge inspiration to me and shall remain one of my favourite bands until the day I die! So, as you can imagine, when the chance arose to interview them… I jumped at it! All four of them were absolutely lovely and a pleasure to talk to. They made it easy for an interview novice like myself! Keep on reading to find out what they had to say on being back in the UK, the Girl Crush controversy and running from the law!

After the chaos and confusion that was the Country2Country line-up announcement, with much of the line-up leaked online long before the official launch, and a lot of distress and debate about whether Ashley Monroe will actually be playing London or not (she is), my day of stress was somewhat improved by the late announcement of the line-up, meaning I actually arrived on time! Following the launch was a hotly anticipated ‘C2C Presents’ shows, starring one of my favourite groups Little Big Town, and what a show they provided at such a small and intimate venue!

Little Big Town, David Nail, Ashley Monroe @ Starlight Theatre, Kansas City, MO | August 29, 2015 – Review

From my previous experience of seeing Little Big Town live, I knew how incredible their show was, and just how much energy they put into making sure their fans leave having had an incredible experience. On this tour however, they have really surpassed themselves, providing openers of the very highest quality in Ashley Monroe and David Nail, both artists that I would travel some miles to see doing a headline show. Having said that, the line up didn’t stop there, since the show was actually kicked off with a set provided by Cam. I’m glad I was early for the show, because Cam is a fabulous live performer, with a small but quality reservoir of songs, including the moving ‘Burning House’.

Little Big Town ‘Pain Killer’ – Single Review

Little-Big-Town-Pain-Killer-2015-Promo-Single-600x600

Power group Little Big Town is back with a new single, their 3rd from Pain Killer. It was announced earlier that Little Big Town would be releasing the title track, “Pain Killer”, as their follow up single to the smash hit “Girl Crush”. The album was released almost a year ago in October 2014, and is the group’s 6th studio album. Produced by Jay Joyce, who has made a name for himself as a producer who gives each album a different sound, the record is no exception. Pain Killer marked a departure of sound by Little Big Town, who before tended to leans towards a countrier sound, but went with a funkier, off the wall sound for their latest effort. I personally prefer their other albums, and their old sound. I could never get behind Pain Killer completely, I liked a few songs from the album, but wasn’t thrilled with it as a whole.
