Country music group Little Big Town’s Ryman Auditorium residency will kick off February 24th, the same day their eighth studio album The Breaker drops. The popular quartet are the very first artists to land a residency at this historic Nashville venue.
“It’s going to be a great privilege and honor,” Karen Fairchild shared during the initial announcement of the residency. “We’re very humbled to get to look at all those folks who have inspired us and also to introduce you to new folks that we think will change the course of country music.”
Little Big Town most recently performed during the 2017 Grammy Awards tribute to the Bee Gees on Sunday night. Though that big stage surely came with some nerves, playing the Ryman is next-level for the musicians.
“The nerves are starting to kick in because it’s coming up really soon, but I think we feel a responsibility to honor that place and what it represents,” Little Big Town’s Phillip Sweet admitted during a recent press conference. “What it represents to us personally, but us being the face of the first artist ever to do this at the Ryman is just so amazing. I can’t even describe it really. I feel kind of silly talking about it, because it’s just a sacred place. I don’t know why it is, but it is.”
