Little Big Town launches new disc in November

Wednesday, October 3, 2007 – Hoping to follow the breakout success of "The Road to Here," Little Big Town is releasing "A Place to Land" Nov. 6 on Equity Music.

The disc consists of 12 new tracks, 10 penned by Little Big Town themselves with their producer, Wayne Kirkpatrick. Songs include a track about emotional abuse, "Evangeline," along with the yearning love song "To Know Love," which the band wrote on Valentine's Day.

"This record is the heart and soul of what we're about," says Karen Fairchild, who shares lead and harmony vocals with the other members of this wholly democratic group. "We did a lot of soul searching while making this record. It was a very intense, and very gratifying, experience."

The group purposely set out to deliver what they describe as a "complete body of work." "We're fans of albums that you listen to from start to finish, like Rumours and Red-Headed Stranger," Jimi Westbrook says. "We wanted every song to be a piece of a bigger puzzle."

The quartet broke with their last disc and several hits, including "Boondocks" and "Bring It On Home."

CD review - The Breaker Anyone who missed Little Big Town's remarkable 2012 Unplugged performance on CMT should seek it out online. When they sing their monster hit "Pontoon," four hypnotic voices combine to harmonic perfection with no studio tricks - pick from any of the microphones, and it works as the song's lead vocal. 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" ...
