One of Country music’s most successful and celebrated groups, Little Big Town, have released their ninth studio album, Nightfall. The self-produced album is one of the band’s most intimate and powerful to date.
Co-writing nine of the album’s 13 tracks, the band – who have been together for over 20 years, have already kicked off this latest effort with a 2020 Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their empowering song, “The Daughters.” The song serves as an inspirational and motivational call for young girls to pursue their passions and believe in themselves regardless of societal expectations of women.

The album’s current single, “Over Drinking,” is a pick-yourself-up and dust off the heartache anthem. The single’s music video stars Michelle Monaghan and takes inspiration from classic films like Urban Cowboy and Thelma & Louise – complete with Stetsons, fringe and a mechanical bull.
Another track from Nightfall, “Sugar Coat,” and its accompanying music video starring Kate Bosworth, tells the story of a forbearing wife and mother whose husband’s continuous philandering proves harder and harder to endure but is pressured out of the responsibility to her family to keep smiling and wearing her ‘sugar coat.’
Ahead of the album’s release, Little Big Town performed a track-by-track showcase of Nightfall at New York City’s famed concert venue, Carnegie Hall. The performance comes just ahead of their two night engagement (January 17th & 18th) at one of New York’s other iconic venues, the Apollo Theatre, which officially kicks-off of their national Nightfall tour.
