Little Big Town raises $55K for cancer

Friday, July 16, 2010 – Little Big Town raised more than $55,000 for the T.J. Martell Foundation at their 4th annual Ride For A Cure event held Sunday, July 11.

The event featured pre-ride performances by Brett Eldridge, Randy Montana and Cali Rodi and post-ride performances by Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Josh Thompson, and The Band Perry.

"We are thrilled with the turn out for this year's Ride for the Cure," said Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild. "It was our biggest ride yet. The T.J. Martell Foundation is close to all of our hearts and we are so lucky to be able to support such an amazing cause so we can find a cure."

The band also held an auction, which included items donated by country music artists such as Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban, Jamey Johnson, Lady Antebellum, Eric Church and others.

Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman and her husband personally donated their Tennessee Titan's season football tickets to the highest bidder to attend a game this fall. Hand written and autographed lyrics to Little Big Town's current single Little White Church was also auctioned off.

Proceeds from Ride For A Cure locally supports cancer research at the Frances Williams Preston Laboratories at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. The T.J. Martell Foundation supports leukemia, cancer and AIDS research at eight top hospitals in the U.S.

But now that the group has ascended to the upper rung of stardom, different challenges arise. How do you compete with yourself fresh from a Grammy for Best Country Song ...
CD review - Pain Killer For some, listening to Little Big Town will be an act of searching for something at least half as catchy as "Pontoon," yet without success. Whenever a group creates such a fantastically memorable single, the prospect of following it up successfully can be a bit of a handicap. With that said, though, "Pain Killer" is a pretty good pop-country album, as pop-country albums go. Although Little Big Town has never been known to be rockers, the rollicking "Save Your Sin" ...
