Three of the hottest country music acts just came together on one stage during NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Grammy-Award winning vocal group Little Big Town invited their friends and upcoming new tour-mates Midland and Kacey Musgraves along to help electrify the late night studio crowd on Sept. 20 with a medley of songs. The appearance was a preview for their upcoming “The Breakers Tour,” which was announced earlier this week.

Midland opened up the mash-up with an abbreviated version of their popular hit, “Drinkin’ Problem.” The Texas-based trio made up of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson sported fashionable cowboy apparel as they put their signature vocal blend on the tune from their upcoming debut studio album, “On the Rocks,” due out Sept. 22.

Not to be outdone, Kacey then followed up “Drinkin’ Problem” with an acoustic take of her 2012 breakthrough hit, “Merry Go ‘Round” before Little Big Town took over with a rocking rendition of the Electric Light Orchestra’s 1979 hit, “Don’t Bring Me Down.”


All three acts made sure to put their own impressive twists on select portions of the ELO song, proving that their future shows together are bound to be amazing!
