Live Nation Press Release

Celebrating their 25th anniversary as one of country music’s most successful groups, multi-Platinum, Grammy Award-winning four-piece Little Big Town – comprised of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook – joined forces with longtime friends and collaborators Sugarland at last night’s CMT Music Awards to deliver a stunning world premiere performance of their new song “Take Me Home” – listen here and watch here. The two powerhouse groups are also set to embark on a U.S. tour titled “Take Me Home.” See more details below.

Little Big Town and Sugarland’s rendition of “Take Me Home," originally written and released by Phil Collins in 1985, gives the song a fresh new meaning but leaves us with a familiar longing. The performance served as a monumental homecoming for the two country music giants as they last shared the CMTMA stage in 2008 for a rousing rendition of “Life In A Northern Town.”

“Last night felt like a real homecoming for us and a full-circle moment,” Little Big Town shared. “When we toured with Sugarland last, we would all be backstage harmonizing different cover songs to try and surprise the audience every night. There’s something about this song that feels so nostalgic of that time. It really is like coming home.

“The ‘Take Me Home’ tour feels like a celebration of being a band for 25 years, and we’re so excited to throw this party with our great friends Sugarland. We’ll both be playing all our biggest hits and then some. Can’t wait to see everyone!”

Fans will hear the newly released single live this fall on the “Take Me Home” U.S. tour, produced by Live Nation and Sandbox Live, with special guest Sugarland and support from The Castellows. Various ticket presales will run throughout the week, ahead of the general sale beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, April 12, at www.littlebigtown.com. The fall trek includes a stop at KeyBank Center in Buffalo on Nov. 2. The closing night is a special Nashville homecoming for the band, as it’ll be its first show in town since 2017’s iconic, sold-out, 10-night residency at Ryman Auditorium.

The tour will also offer a variety of different VIP packages and experiences for fans to take their concert experience to the next level. Packages vary but include premium tickets, an interactive Little Big Town coffee book, limited-edition and autographed tour poster and more. VIP package contents vary based on offer selected.

Twenty-five never looked so good! Much more to come from Little Big Town this year – stay tuned!

More on The Castellows

Neo-traditional country music trio The Castellows, bring a literal meaning to the phrase, “family tradition.” The band, comprised of sisters Ellie (lead guitar), Powell (banjo) and Lily (vocals), hail from small rural Georgetown, Georgia, but now call Nashville home. The Castellows’ sound is traditional, yet modern. Authentic, yet harnessed. The common thread among the trio, other than their DNA, is their masterful three-part harmonies that blend together to create one singular, almost angelic, voice. The Castellows’ craft as songwriters is as robust as their voices, which is evident across the trio’s debut EP, “A Little Goes A Long Way,” which was released worldwide on Feb. 9. The band wrote/co-wrote six of the seven songs that make up the project, with the promise of much more music to come. The band began turning heads of music industry insiders in January 2023. When spring arrived, The Castellows had signed a record deal with Warner Music Nashville and Warner Records, collectively. Wasting no time on pleasantries, The Castellows immediately got to work writing, recording, and performing live. Tapping veteran producer Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow, Nanci Griffith, Queens of the Stone Age), the first fruits of labor to be harvested from 2023 is the debut “A Little Goes A Long Way.” One year later, the three sisters from a cattle farm in Georgia are still turning heads, landing on multiple 2024 watch lists, including “CMT Next Women of Country,” CMT “Listen Up,” Pandora, Country Now, and NashvilleLifestyles’ “Five Groups You Need To Know,” in addition to receiving a nomination for the CMT Digital-First Performance of the Year at the 2024 CMT Music Awards.
