Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook will be honored at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville with an entire exhibition dedicated to their band, Little Big Town.
The new exhibit, titled “Little Big Town: The Power of Four,” will open on June 26 and stay up for almost a year, closing on June 9, 2019. The show will feature fun items like instruments, Fairchild’s wedding dress, the neon sign used on the Pain Killer album cover, the band’s outfits from the 2014 CMA Awards (when they performed “Day Drinking” and “Bang Bang” with Ariana Grande complete with LED lights,) childhood photos of the band members and detailed information conveying the story of how they became a unique force in the country music world with two female and two male vocalists.
“Karen, Kimberly, Phillip, and Jimi—Little Big Town—build their music on a foundation of beautiful vocal harmonies seldom heard in country music,” the CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Kyle Young, explained in a statement. “The group has enjoyed best-selling, award-winning success, but achieving that success required uncommon dedication and courage—and the willingness to make records for four different labels—before Little Big Town became consistent hit makers. Their journey has been a long one, and we embrace the opportunity to share Little Big Town’s story with our visitors.”
To coincide with the special exhibit’s opening, Little Big Town will participate in an afternoon interview in the CMA Theater on June 26 with all four band members discussing their career, their lives and their musical process. Attendees will need a program pass, and tickets are already available here.
Another program will occur on June 30th when Grammy-winning songwriter Liz Rose, who penned LBT’s “Sober” and “Girl Crushm” will hold a songwriting session. This event will be livestreamed on the CMHOF website.
