Country group Little Big Town is riding high on the success of its album “Tornado,” home to members’ career-rejuvenating hit “Pontoon.” The harmony-rich quartet of Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet picked up a Grammy in 2012 for their performance of “Pontoon.” The group has won back-to-back vocal group of the year trophies at the CMA Awards.
Little Big Town has turned their latest hit, "Sober," into a love letter to their fans. The song's new video was shot on the road last year and features concertgoers singing along with every word of the song. It's available now.
LBT's Kimberly Schlapman, who sings lead on "Sober," says the sweet lyrics remind her of her first husband, who passed away in 2005. She's now married to Stephen Schlapman and they have a daughter named Daisy.
There's been no time off for Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet of award-winning country music group Little Big Town, who spent the better part of 2013 on tour with Keith Urban and are now opening for George Strait this coming weekend.
"Sober" is the fourth single off Tornado, which is the group's fifth studio album and has already delivered the hits "Tornado" and "Pontoon." It was the latter that led to the band's first Grammy award, in 2013.
The "Sober" video, shot throughout their tour last year, includes intimate behind-the-scenes footage of the group, and the song hits especially close to home for Schlapman, whose first husband died of a heart attack in 2005.
