Last night the country music group Little Big Town managed to sing more than 15 songs during their early evening set at Chicago's Country LakeShake Festival. They performed on the main stage right before Miranda Lambert's headlining set, and all the members of Little Big Town were nothing short of exceptional when it came to their live show.
Their stage presence and delivery somehow manages to blend class and maturity with playfulness and mischief. All four vocalists play well off each other, and not once did any member seem selfish in wanting to outshine the others. They each shined in their own way, and took turns when it came to having their solo time in the spotlight.
One of the most beautiful moments came when it was Karen Fairchild's turn to shine solo. She sang "Girl Crush" front and center on the extended "T" part of the stage while the other members hung back on the main stage. When it came to singing along, the audience participation was at an all time high, which made the moment that much more powerful. Another standout moment was when the group sang "Better Man," which was hauntingly beautiful.
Other songs Little Big Town performed at their 2017 Country LakeShake set in Chicago were "Boondocks," "Pontoon," "Tornado," and "Day Drinking." Their own songs weren't the only tracks they performed live. The four-piece group also sang a couple of covers. Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman sang Alicia Keys' "Fallin'" together, and Phillip Sweet sang Prince's hit single "When Doves Cry."
Now that their performance at Country LakeShake is over, Little Big Town will continue on with their North American summer tour, which mainly consists of festival dates. This fall they'll head overseas for a headlining tour around the U.K. Tickets for all of Little Big Town's U.K. concerts are on sale now via their AXS page here.
