Country music quartet Little Big Town is getting its own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. That’s right! When it opens on June 29th, fans will be able to enjoy viewing objects that tell the popular band’s story so far.
Since forming about 20 years ago, Little Big Town has consistently produced award-winning music and earned numerous accolades. Together, Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook have earned platinum certifications for three albums: Pain Killer, Tornado and The Road to Here. Last year, they scored their sixth CMA Award in a row for Vocal Group of the Year. Additionally, they won their fourth ACM Award for Vocal Group of the Year.
“Karen, Kimberly, Phillip, and Jimi – Little Big Town – build their music on a foundation of beautiful vocal harmonies seldom heard in country music,” said CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Kyle Young. “The group has enjoyed best-selling, award-winning success, but achieving that success required uncommon dedication and courage – and the willingness to make records for four different labels – before Little Big Town became consistent hitmakers. Their journey has been a long one, and we embrace the opportunity to share Little Big Town’s story with our visitors.”
Members of the group are very excited to share pieces of their musical journey with fans at the new exhibit full of keepsakes and photos from their career.
“Having an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is something we would never have thought to dream of for ourselves,” Karen Fairchild said, according to CMT. “We are honored to be a part of country music, and are so thankful to all our fans, the music community here in Nashville and the museum for this privilege.”
The Neon signs used for the cover photo of Little Big Town’s 2014 album Pain Killer will also be on display. So will Karen’s high school cheerleading uniform and Jimi’s childhood trumpet. There are plenty of other things featured as well to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the band and its members.
Little Big Town: The Power of Four opens on June 29th to the public and with be continuing through June 9, 2019. Other country acts on the 2018 exhibit schedule are Ralph Stanley, The Judds, and Emmylou Harris.
