Grammy-Award winning vocal group Little Big Town has launched the first-ever year-long artist residency at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The residency was created in celebration of the 125th anniversary of the Ryman, know as The Mother Church of Country Music, and the release of the band's seventh studio album.
On February 24, the same day their new album The Breaker was released, members Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook performed to a sold out auditorium. In the crowd, family, friends, songwriters, and fans enjoyed hearing new tunes for the first time and singing along to their current number one single “Better Man”.
