Recently Little Big town was on the nomination list of a vocal group of the year at Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards. Their song “The Breaker,” went in the top of the country charts.
They have gained the name for combining four unique voices into one distinct harmony. More than their music, the bond which all they carry together is a more precious thing.
During the interview with CBS News correspondent Jan Crawford, Karen explained:
“We’re family. We’ve, like, experienced the greatest highs and the most horrible lows. And we’ve always been together.”
Though they are now in the highs with all the hit songs and the honors, they started from all the way down. Karen explained:
“We looked at each other at a certain point. It’s, like, we’re just gonna keep showin’ up and keep out-workin’ everybody. If that’s what we have to do, then we’ll do it. We never talked about quitting.”
The group has gone through many up and down throughout their career. Yet they still maintain their bond and relationship as stronger as it was in the beginning days. No doubt, they are the true example of true friendship.
