Little Big Town may have plenty of big hits of their own, but they’re also pretty good at covering songs, too!
And, they proved that on a July 28 episode of ABC’s summer series “Greatest Hits.”
During the show that revisits songs from the 1980s, ’90s and ’00s, the group channeled Sheryl Crow’s 2002 smash “Soak Up the Sun.” But, it was their soulful and sexy take on Alicia Keys’ “Fallin’” that had fans really going nuts.
As you can see in this video, the quartet made up of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet — flawlessly flaunt their mellifluous blend of harmonies on the ballad. Karen takes the lead, while her country cohorts sprinkle vocals in well throughtout parts of the track. And, when Jimi hits his high note, it’s truly magical!
Perhaps the foursome should receive some sort of award for slaying the Grammy-winning number. After all, “Fallin’” is a challenging song to sing. Heck, even they admitted that.
“This song is vocal gymnastics,” said Karen to which Jimi added, “Why we bit this one off, I have no idea!”
Last week Little Big Town sang a hypnotic rendition of Oasis; “Wonderwall,” which you can watch here.
