Reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year, Little Big Town have had their current album Tornado certified Platinum by the RIAA in recognition of one million units sold.
Tornado, which was released in September 2012, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and went on to remain at the top of the chart for five consecutive weeks. Produced by Jay Joyce, the album includes back-to-back #1 singles “Pontoon” and “Tornado,” as well as the current single, “Your Side of the Bed.”
The debut single from Tornado, “Pontoon” spent two weeks at the top of the country radio chart and was the 2012 CMA Single of the Year. The double Platinum single also earned the band a Grammy award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Pontoon.”
The album’s title track, “Tornado,” also peaked at #1 on the country radio chart and currently exceeds sales of over 800,000. The official video, which has been viewed over 4 million times, recently won the ACM award for “Video of the Year.”
Current single, “Your Side of the Bed” was written by Little Big Town and Lori McKenna and has been described by USA Today as “stunning” and “…an unusually subtle power ballad.” Billboard magazine writes, “Little Big Town’s compelling new ballad boasts all the ingredients of a country classic…the cut sizzles with emotional tension.” The official music video quickly garnered over one million views since its debut on ABC’s Good Morning America and current digital sales of the track exceed 173,000.
Little Big Town will join Keith Urban on his Light the Fuse Tour starting this summer. Earlier this year, they headlined the sold-out Tornado Tour which visited over 25 cities nationwide.
