Big news today (September 9) from Little Big Town, as country’s preeminent quartet reveal the details of their ninth studio set, Nightfall, and more.
Setting the album’s release for January 17, Nightfall will arrive just one day after a historic show in New York City as the group headline Carnegie Hall. They’ll be the first mainstream country act to do so since Alan Jackson in 2013, and the ultra-refined performance will also serve as the kickoff to a 30+ date Nightfall Tour of intimate, often-elegant theaters.
Meanwhile, LBT has also released the album’s classic-country themed first single, a swaying ballad titled “Over Drinking.”
Written by Jesse Frasure, Cary Barlowe, Hillary Lindsey, Ashley Gorley and Steph Jones, the woozy track features a getting-over-you plot and a stripped-back presentation of the group’s acclaimed harmonies, and they’ll perform it for the first time on NBC’s TODAY this Thursday (9/12) during the 8 a.m. hour.
“I’m over drinking, over you / I’m done with bottles of chasing the blues / I’ll still go out with the boys and knock back a few / But I’m over drinking, over you,” goes the heartworn chorus.
Here’s the complete routing for Little Big Town’s The Nightfall Tour, which will feature singer-songwriter Caitlyn Smith on all dates except for the Carnegie Hall opener.
