Little Big Town is celebrating more than 20 years as a band with the release their 10th studio album, Mr. Sun, available September 16.

Ahead of the album’s release, the band’s Karen FairchildKimberly SchlapmanPhilip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook joined Audacy’s Rob + Holly to chat new music and how the four have managed to stick together for over two decades.

“It feels like just yesterday we were driving ourselves around in our own van and loading up our own merch,” Schlapman said, reflecting on the early days of their career. “And then it does feel like forever,” she laughed. “We have a forever story and it’s been twenty-something years long.”

The band has celebrated the release of 27 singles together and they credit “patience, understanding, grace and respect,” for getting them through all the ups and downs.

“We built this whole thing, from the foundation up, with it being about the band,” said Westbrook. “A lot of times… it can be easy for your egos to get in the way.”

Their approach to focus on the quartet as a whole has also proven successful as the group’s earned numerous award nominations including their most recent in the Vocal Group of the Year category for the 2022 CMA Awards.

The always-positive clan is readying to release their 10th studio album, Mr.Sun on September 16 and according to them — it’ll give you all the positive vibes, just as the title suggests.

“[Positivity] was definitely the intention,” said Fairchild. “Especially coming out of Nightfall, the last record, were were holding on to a few songs that didn’t seem to fit that body of work.”

She continued “I think during the pandemic we all needed something to look forward to, you know? So this is the sunnier side of the street!”

Grab your sunglasses! The LBT talent is sure to shine bright on this project! Check it out September 16.
