Everybody loves Little Big Town—not just as musicians, but as human beings. There I’ve said it. They are known in the industry as some of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet, so it’s understandable that there would be high demand to catch their recently announced residency at the Ryman—Little Big Town at the Mother Church.
Originally the group was scheduled to perform six shows during their residency—Feb. 24 and 25, May 19 and 20, Sept. 15 and 16—which marks the first time an artist or band has held a residency at the Ryman. Due to an overwhelming response, six shows was simply not enough. The band has now added three more dates—July 28-29 and Nov. 27th, with additional dates to be announced later this year.
Each show will see surprise special guests and different opening acts. Brent Cobb is scheduled for the Feb. 24 show and Ashley Monroe will open the show on Feb. 25. Tickets and special two-day packages for the newly-announced shows will go on sale Friday, February 10th at 10:00 a.m. CT via ticketmaster.com and ryman.com and will be available online only.
The kick off of Little Big Town’s residency on Feb. 24, coincides with the release of the band’s seventh studio album, The Breaker, produced by Jay Joyce. The Breaker features LBT’s current single, “Better Man,” which is currently racing up the charts.
