Little Big Town
When/Where: Saturday, June 7th, LP Field
Who: The ABBA of contemporary country
Why You Can't Miss Them: With sinuous harmonies and a smart, signature vocal blend worthy of Fleetwood Mac, few acts on country radio leap out of the speakers with a sound as fresh as this co-ed quartet. Well-oiled, hot off the heels of a long stint supporting Keith Urban, LBT are currently at work on their highly anticipated, as-yet-untitled sixth studio album with producer Jay Joyce. The title of the long player's forthcoming lead-off single, "Day Drinking," suggests it'll pair well with the group's relentlessly infectious, Chattahoochee-ready 2012 smash, "Pontoon." Last year, the group surprised CMA Fest crowds, bringing out Sheryl Crow as a special guest during its LP Field set. Perhaps this year they'll debut some new tunes.
