iTunes Review

Fans of Little Big Town who got a hint of their fourth studio album with the bluesy single “Little White Church” also got to hear what could be LBT’s last Fleetwood Mac-inspired recording. The rest of The Reason Why finds the quartet leaning away from their Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham influences while comfortably settling into their own skin. That’s not to say that they don’t deliver those honeyed harmonies — the title-track overflows with them — but it’s their own looser and unfettered harmonies that resonate with more originality and confidence. The band still plays like they were raised on ‘70s AM-radio gold, but they’re injecting their own tones now, especially with grittier guitars on “Runaway Train” and on the masculine ballad “Kiss Goodbye,” where background tinges of electronic ambience chirp like otherworldly crickets. Even their harder numbers strut stronger, as evidenced by “Why, Oh Why,” a roadhouse rocker that recalls Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris singing “Big Mouth Blues.” Throughout The Reason Why, Karen Fairchild steps up her vocal prowess, most noticeably on the infectious “All The Way Down.”

The Best Little Big Town CD

For my money, it is hard to beat this CD. Boondocks is one of the best country songs of the 21st century. Good as Gone is not far off with a thumping banjo beat right behind it. Songs like Lost and Bring It On Home prove they don't need a fast tempo to create a connection as well. Other people like the more recent stuff, but top to bottom of the CD, none are better than this. They are the most underrated country musicians and the harmonies are worth the price even if you don't like country music.

Country vocal quartet Little Big Town began with Kimberly Roads and Karen Fairchild, two Georgia natives who began singing together in college. Arkansas-born and Alabama-raised Jimi Westbrook, a friend of Fairchild's husband, joined them to make a trio, and the group was completed by the addition of Arkansan Phil Sweet in 1998. From the outset, Little Big Town devoted their sound to harmony and multiple lead vocals, a combination that made the band a hard sell at first. They finally landed a deal...
