Monday may be the beginning of the work week for most of us, but that didn’t prevent Little Big Town from rocking the Ryman Auditorium with a heckuva party on Sunday, July 30.
In another installment of their 2017 Ryman residency, the four-piece band played all of their hits, plus fan favorite “Bones” for the night of fun and country music. They also invited a few friends to join them. What’s a party without guests, right?
Since this big soiree was held at the “Mother Church of Country Music,” it only made sense that band members Jimi, Karen, Kimberly and Phillip invited “My Church” singer Maren Morris. And since it was their party, she, in turn, asked them to join her in her performance. Talk about a religious experience! In addition to singing her debut hit single, Maren and Little Big Town also sang an a cappella version of the traditional gospel favorite, “Down in the River to Pray,” made popular in the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”
The band’s record label mates, Brothers Osborne, also hit the stage to perform what Karen picks as the duo’s next single, “Loving You Back.” Of course, Little Big Town also stepped up to thicken up that harmony a bit, but we’re confident T.J. and John Osborne can sell it on their own, too.
Hot young singer, songwriter and guitar picker Charlie Worsham was also part of the great night of music, including helping out with a blowout version of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.”
Sound like a night of fun? It was actually a whole weekend of fun as artists Miranda Lambert and RaeLynn joined Little Big Town on the Ryman stage on Saturday.
You still have time to see this amazing band during their residency at the iconic Ryman Auditorium. The quartet will be back there for dates in September and then again in November.
