Little Big Town Announces Six-Show Residency at the Ryman Auditorium in 2017 & Releases New “Better Man” Video [Watch]

Nashville mayor Megan Barry made a special announcement at the Ryman Auditorium this morning (Nov. 1): Little Big Town will perform a six-show residency at the Mother Church of Country Music in 2017. The six shows—Feb. 24 and 25, May 19 and 20, Sept. 15 and 16—mark the first time an artist or band has held a residency at the Ryman. Tickets go on sale Friday.

“Probably the greatest thing that has ever happened to this band is being members of the Grand Ole Opry, and this goes hand in hand with that honor, to do the first residency,” said LBT’s Karen Fairchild.

“As musicians, there is no better feeling in the world than playing on the stage at the Ryman,” said LBT’s Jimi Westbrook. “To be given the opportunity to headline their first residency means so much to us as a band and we promise to make each night as memorable for the fans as possible.”

To coincide with the residency, Little Big Town will release its seventh studio album, The Breaker, on Feb. 24, which features the new single, “Better Man,” a tune that was penned by Taylor Swift.

The Breaker is about letting go of things that break you, it’s about the new ground you try and break as a human being and as a musician,” said Karen. “Sometimes you’re the one that’s broken and sometimes you’re the breaker. It’s a sentimental record because we’re feeling super grateful for our friends and family and the chance to share the next chapter.”

LBT released the video for “Better Man” today (Nov. 1), which you can watch below.
