Initially coming together as a duo of Kimberly Roads and Karen Fairchild, the college friends soon brought in Jimi Westbrook and Phil Sweet to expand the lineup, becoming a quartet by 1998. After initially struggling to find record label support, the success of another country vocal group, Dixie Chicks, made Little Big Town appear a commercially viable option, eventually signing with Monument Records in 2000.
It was two years before any recorded material surfaced but with “Don’t Waste My Time,” the band had their debut single. Bolstered by a number of minor hits, their self-titled debut album grew into a moderate success that same year. However, it was in 2005 that the band found superstardom, through their second record, “The Road,” which spawned several Top 20 hit singles.
Despite the Platinum-selling success of their second release, 2007’s “A Place to Land” failed to build on the previous commercial success. Although through extensive touring and high profile support slots with Sugarland and Carrie Underwood, the band continued to grow. 2010’s breakout hit single, “Little White Church” brought Little Big Town more chart success, reaching number 14 on Billboard’s country chart, helping to establish their fourth album, “The Reason Why.”
In 2012, the band managed to top the country charts with the single “Pontoon,” the lead single off their fifth record, “Tornado,” released the same year. The album itself shot to the number two spot on the Billboard 200, bringing Little Big Town their biggest chart success of their career. Utilizing producer Jay Jayce’s talents once again, they released “Pain Killer” in 2014, featuring the lead single, “Day Drinking.”
