LBT came to prominence in country music when their album The Road To Here sold over a million copies and went platinum. The album was released on a relatively small label owned by Clint Black, Equity Music Group.
After their rise to the top of the charts, LBT saw the label fold under economic pressures and some apparent mismanagement by an exec at Equity.
Due to the unique nature of the contract with Equity, LBT was able to take their album A Place To Land over to Capital Nashville for a re-release. The singles on the record hung around the top 40 for a few weeks and the album never caught on like The Road To Here had.
Most fans were hoping LBT would come back strong.
And now they have…
Little Big Town | Little White Church
Little White Church was recently released on Capital and the single is already making it’s way through the top 30.
The song is pure Little Big Town. The music, melody, and vocals are everything LBT fans yearn for as it plays with a strong, almost bluegrass vibe.
The lyrics roll on as the band sings about a woman demanding that her man take her to get hitched before she continues to put up with him anymore.
No more free milk if you will.
The song is unique and plays well to the ears of country music listeners when it comes on the radio. I’m sure you’ll find woman and probably a few men singing a long in their cars on the highway as the emotion in the vocal connects on a personal level.
The song is a winner.
The emotion reminds me of Miranda Lambert with Kerosene or Gunpowder and Lead. The aggressiveness is there and men hearing this might be scared into getting hitched with their waiting brides-to-be.
No more chicken and gravy, but Little White Church is smooth and tasty gravy on the airwaves in 2010.
