Little Big Town        

Country Music Vocal Group Known for "Girl Crush" & "Boondocks"

Little Big Town is a country music group. Founded in 1998, the group has comprised the same four members since its founding: Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook. Their musical style relies heavily on four-part vocal harmonies, with all four members alternating as lead vocalists; Sweet and Westbrook also play rhythm guitar.

After a recording deal with the Mercury Nashville Records label which produced no singles or albums, Little Big Town released its self-titled debut on Monument Records in 2002. It produced two minor country chart singles before the group left the label.

By 2005, the group had been signed to Equity Music Group, an independent record label owned by Clint Black. Their second album, The Road to Here, was released that year and received a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

A Place to Land, their third album, was released via Equity, then re-released via Capitol Nashville after Equity closed in 2008.

Subsequent albums have included 2010's The Reason Why, 2012's Tornado, 2014's Pain Killer, and 2017's The Breaker (2017). They have charted over 20 singles on Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay, including the #1 singles "Pontoon," "Girl Crush," and "Better Man," along with the top 10 hits "Boondocks," "Bring It On Home," "Little White Church," "Tornado," and "Day Drinking."
