Little Big Town brought The Breakers Tour to New York City with a sold out show at Radio City Music Hall.
Following their year-long residency at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Grammy-award winning vocal group Little Big Town recently kicked off their 2018 nationwide tour. Named after their latest critically acclaimed album, The Breakers Tour includes openers Midland and Kacey Musgraves. On February 24th the tour stopped at New York’s historic Radio City Music Hall.
Featuring Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet, the reigning six-time consecutive CMA and four-time ACM Vocal Group of the Year kicked off their set with a moving rendition of Elton John’s Rocket Man.
Throughout the evening, their flawless harmonies combined on some of their biggest hits from the past twenty years. Crowd favorites included Pontoon, Day Drinking, and Boondocks. Karen Fairchild had the sold out audience in awe of her vocals on Girl Crush, while the Taylor Swift penned Better Man had the crowd singing along to every word.
Grammy award winner Kacey Musgraves, who took the stage prior to Little Big Town, gave a stunning performance. While the crowd loved hearing some of her biggest hits like Follow Your Arrow and Merry Go Round, her new songs that brought the loudest applause. We’re all in for something incredibly special if Butterflies and Space Cowboy are any indication of how good Musgraves’ forthcoming album Golden Hour is going to be.
Big Machine recording artists and recent Grammy nominees Midland kicked the evening off. Comprised of Mark Wystrach, Jess Carson and Cameron Duddy, Midland brought their style of smooth seventies California country to the stage. The crowd was definitely feeling their vibe as they performed their two hit singles, Drinkin’ Problem and Make A Little, both off their debut studio album, On The Rocks. These guys are without doubt one of the greatest things to happen to country music in a long time. It won’t be long til they’re headlining venues like this.
