Little Big Town will be the subject of a yearlong exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum.
Opening on June 29, Little Big Town: The Power of Four will feature unique items that illuminate the personalities of group members Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook. The exhibit will also focus on the narrative that brought the four members together to form contemporary country music’s first two-woman, two-man vocal group.
“Having an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is something we would never have thought to dream of for ourselves,” says Karen. “It is beyond a dream come true. We are honored to be a part of country music, and are so thankful to all our fans, the music community here in Nashville and the museum for this privilege.”
Highlights of the exhibition include:
- neon signs used for the cover photo of the album Pain Killer
- instruments used in underwater scenes in the music video for “Pain Killer”
- BCBG Max Azria linen sundress with crochet detail and Golden Goose boots worn by Karen when she married Jimi in a private ceremony in Nashville in 2006
- clothes fitted with LED tube lighting worn by Little Big Town for their appearance at the 2014 CMA Awards
- Gretsch Electromatic with silver-sparkle top played by Kimberly in performances of “Your Side of the Bed”
- childhood memorabilia, including Karen’s high school cheerleading uniform, Jimi’s trumpet, Kimberly’s recital costume and a drawing by Phillip
- a handmade Afghan ceramic pitcher, given to Phillip by an American soldier after Little Big Town performed at a small military base in isolated Tarinkot, Afghanistan
On June 26, Little Big Town will discuss their musical inspirations, creative process and career milestones in the museum’s CMA Theater. Tickets can be reserved on June 14 at 10 a.m. CT.
Little Big Town: The Power of Four runs from June 29, 2018, to June 9, 2019.
