Little Big Town Rocks Ft. Sill [PHOTOS]
By the time Little Big Town took the stage at Ft. Sill’s Polo Field Saturday night, the rambunctious crowd had already been treated to a pair of great performances by first the O’s, and then a blazing bluesey, guitar dominated perfomance by Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown to get them thoroughly worked up and were ready for the main event of the evening. They weren’t disappointed.
Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook, Phillip Sweet and Kimberly Schlapman took the crowd through a roller coaster ride of the quartet’s 15-year career, playing their hits and some album favorites from throughout their career. But Little Big Town wasn’t satisfied with playing the tried and true, instead pulling out song’s from their forthcoming album ‘Painkiller’, including the groups current chart climber “Day Drinking” and classic rock tunes such as Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.”
The group’s harmonies and strong back up band (aided by stellar guitar work from Jimi and Phillip along with the surprising multi-instrument abilities of an energetic Kimberly) blended perfectly on every song, no matter the tempo or genre to provide a stellar 2-hour show from the group.
