Little Big Town Embodies Perseverance

The reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year has been tapped to present a panel about perseverance in the country music industry at next year’s CRS (Country Radio Seminar), which will be hosted by longtime radio personality Bob Kingsley. The session will take place in Nashville during the annual convention, which runs February 19th – 21st.

The members of Little Big Town remained (and still remain) steadfast in their goals of achieving musical success despite the trials, tribulations, personal tragedies and triumphs they experienced over the past 14 years. During the panel, they will share stories about their perseverance as a band, which eventually landed them a #1 album, 2 #1 singles, a Grammy Award, ACM/CMA Vocal Group of the Year and various awards and accolades.

Throughout their career, the group, made up of members Karen FairchildKimberly SchlapmanJimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet, have stuck together through several challenging label changes. They received their first record deal with Mercury Nashville Records before moving to Sony’s Monument Records, where they released their debut album. From there, the band went from the small independent label, Equity Music Group, to their current label, Capitol Records, which was later taken over by major label, Universal Music Group.

"It's an honor to be asked to be a part of CRS this year and especially the chance to share some of our story as a band through the last 14 years," said Little Big Town. “It's definitely been about perseverance for us."

"Throughout every challenge the band has had, they've continued to establish and develop so many relationships and give back in so many ways," said Bob Kingsley.  "Their ability to adapt to situations and stay ahead is a hard feat, and one that we can all learn from."
