Little Big Town have shared a special at-home performance for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series.
The group gathered in the living room of band members—and married couple—Jimi Westbrook and Karen Fairchild. To perform “Girl Crush,” from their 2014 album Pain Killer, the band employed old-school vocal harmonies, giving the track a rustic edge that distinguishes it from its crisp studio recording. Half of the band’s set was lifted from their latest album Nightfall, but Little Big Town went with their 2005 hit “Boondocks” to end the show.
“We haven’t played together in six months,” Little Big Town shared during their performance. “It’s been a long time, so this is super special, and we love just being a part of what [NPR] do.”
The Alabama group’s performance is the latest instalment in a growing list of artists continuing NPR’s much-loved series with sets recorded at home. Jhené Aiko, Conway the Machine, Oddisee and Korean boyband BTS have all recently recorded performances for the series, with the latter group recording their set in a Seoul record store.
