Little Big Town
I wasn't feeling so hot this morning on my way to work today. I didn't get enough sleep last night (turns out 4 hours isn't enough), I had a stomach ache, and in general was just not ready to start the day. Luckily K102 played one of my favorite songs and it totally picked me up and turned my attitude around. They played "Boondocks" by Little Big Town. Right away I text my friends Joel and Kristen cause I always think of them when I hear this song and started singing as loud as I could. Singing along with the end of the song could cheer up anyones day i am almost positive! I decided I would do a little research on the band to find out more about them. They officially became a band 10 years ago in 1998. Karen and Kimberley sang together at Samford University and in 1994 moved to Nashville. By 1998 Jimi and Phillip finished the band and they have been inseparably ever since. There 2005 album, The Road to Here, was a smash hit and went platinum. There newest album, A Place to Land, is also amazing. It has already had great hits like "I'm with the Band" and "To know Love." Unfortunately they will not be coming to Minnesota any time soon. But, Little Big Town opened for a lady some of you might know named Martina Mcbride. Martina will be performing in Minnesota tomorrow! The Treasure Island Casino tickets are going fast so I am hoping to pick up a pair today.
