See Little Big Town’s Powerful Cover of Alicia Keys’ ‘Fallin”

Country quartet’s harmonies are captivating on the 2001 hit

Little Big Town are celebrating the birthday of singer Karen Fairchild today in between shows on Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights Tour, a trek that has seen both superstar acts fill their respective setlists with plenty of familiar hits. With their gift for shimmering harmonies, throughout their 15-plus years together the quartet has covered a wide range of artists in concert, from the country-infused rock of the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac to Bruce Springsteen and Dolly Parton.

The foursome has been joining Bryan onstage for an extended medley that includes a slithering, sensual take on Marvin Gaye’s “Let Get It On.” But it’s the group’s sweltering, soulful rendition of Grammy winner Alicia Key’s worldwide hit, “Fallin'” that stands out as a highlight of their current set.

Although Wanderlust, the group’s collaborative, experimental (and decidedly non-country) side project with songwriter-producer Pharrell Williams was released to minimal fanfare earlier this year, they are reportedly working on a new country record to follow 2014’s gold-certified Pain Killer.

Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights Tour, with Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch, continues Friday, September 30th, with a two-night stint in Salt Lake City. See LBT’s tour dates here.
