Good Morning America: Little Big Town
Little Big Town is a country group on the rise. In addition to their critical and fan successes, they are part of the GMA family for their theme song contribution on the summer fill-in series Good Afternoon America (now replaced by Katie in many cities). They performed their songs “Pontoon” and “Front Porch Thing” for the GMA audience.
This year they are up for three CMA awards, including vocal group of the year, single of the year, and music video of the year. Their latest release, Tornado, is out September 11 2012.
The band said they were amazed and excited to be nominated. “It was the band’s first #1 record, so that’s a pretty big milestone for us,” Karen Fairchild said.
Their song “Pontoon” marks the band’s first #1, despite the fact that they’ve been at this for 13 years already. “It’s unbelievable, but we couldn’t be more grateful for the journey,” Phillip Sweet said.
GMA: Little Big Town “Pontoon” Performance
It’s never too early for music on the morning shows, so the band was game for a live performance of that #1 song, “Pontoon.” They were all smiles for the early morning gig, and the foursome seemed to feed off one another’s energy.
“Pontoon” is available as a single or on the new album Tornado.
Good Morning America: Country Music Awards Nominations
The 2012 Country Music Awards nominations were announced last week on Good Morning America. Nominees in the top five categories were revealed by Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean. Since the announcement, Blake Shelton has talked about his and his wife’s nominations with Kelly & Michael.
GMA: Little Big Town “Front Porch Thing” Performance
The band concluded this morning’s broadcast with a performance of another Little Big Town song, “Front Porch Thing.” This one seemed to come on stronger and relied more heavily on the four of them singing together. Do you have a favorite Little Big Town song?
