Grammy, CMA, CMT and ACM award-winning country supergroup Little Big Town is set to release one of the country songs of the summer, "Summer Fever," on Wednesday to radio and all digital service providers.
Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook will open the 2018 CMT Music Awards that same day with a performance of "Summer Fever" and continue as the night's hosts for the duration of the show.
The track, co-written by Fairchild, Jesse Frasure, Cary Barlowe and Sam Romans, features Fairchild on lead vocals and encapsulates the spirit of summertime with an infectious melody and nostalgic guitar tones set against the group's famous four-part harmonies. "Summer Fever" was co-produced by Frasure and Shane McAnally and mixed by Spike Stent in Los Angeles.
"It's always amazing when a song seems to just wait for its own perfect timing," Frasure said. "Getting the chance to bring this song to life in the writing room with my co-writers, and through the opportunity to co-produce with my friend Shane McAnally, has been a dream come true. I can't wait to hear this song coming out of a rolled down window this summer."
