Little Big Town‘s lead single from their new album The Breaker (out now) spends a second week at #1! The tune was penned by none other than Taylor Swift and the group has had a lot to say about the songwriter! This is the group’s third single to reach #1!
(Phillip) “I think we wanted people to hear the song without any preconceived ideas. Let the song stand on its own two legs. It’s a beautifully written song, and that was really, out of respect, let it be heard that way.”
(Jimi) “Taylor is the biggest pop star in the world. Along with that title comes a lot of extra things, people wanting to know who she wrote the song about, and all these other conversations, other than the song, which was a beautifully written song, which Taylor does well. So we wanted the song to stand on its own merits, because it’s a great song, and she’s a great writer. I think she kinda liked that.”
(Kimberley) “She’s such an amazing songwriter, for her as a songwriter, to have the song come out and be accepted, and blow up before they found out who wrote it meant everything to her as a songwriter.” – Country Countdown USA
