Critically-acclaimed country music group Little Big Town is heading to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas with special guests David Nail and Ashley Monroe on Friday, June 26. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 17 at 10 a.m.

 

Little Big Town – consisting of members Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook – first entered the music scene more than 15 years ago with hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home,” “Good As Gone” and Grammy-nominated single “Little White Church.”

 

The quartet’s fifth studio album Tornado was released on September 11, 2012 and debuted at the top of the Billboard Country Chart where it stayed in the No. 1 position for five consecutive weeks. The album has been certified Platinum with sales of more than 1 million copies.

 

Tornado, produced by Jay Joyce, includes 2x Platinum-selling No. 1 single “Pontoon” and follow-up single and title-track “Tornado,” which also peaked in the No. 1 position. The Grammy-nominated track, “Your Side of the Bed” and fan-favorite “Sober” are also featured on the album.

 

Collectively, the group has earned more than 25 award show nominations and has taken home the award for ACM Top New Vocal Group, CMA Single of the Year (“Pontoon”), CMA Vocal Group of the Year (2012, 2013, 2014), ACM Vocal Group of the Year, ACM Video of the Year (“Tornado”), a Grammy Award for Best Country Group/Duo Performance (“Pontoon”) and an Emmy award (Outstanding Original Song-“Good Afternoon”).

 

Little Big Town recently completed their sixth studio album, Pain Killer, working again with producer Jay Joyce.  The critically acclaimed album was released on October 21st, and features No. 1 gold-certified hit single “Day Drinking” and current single and fan-favorite “Girl Crush.”

 

The foursome launched The Pain Killer Tour on November 8th in Youngstown, OH with openers Brett Eldredge and Brothers Osborne and recently wrapped the spring leg of the tour with opener Chris Stapleton. The band will continue the tour in June.

 

Little Big Town fulfilled a career milestone and lifelong dream on October 3, 2014 when Reba McEntire asked them to become the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry. They were officially inducted two weeks later.
