Little Big Town are winding down from hosting the CMT Music Awards last week, releasing their new single “Summer Fever,” and now they are gearing up for their summer tour with Miranda Lambert.

Looking back, what a beautiful way to make a record for people I love so much. And now, I can give that music back to them in a way that makes a difference.”
