Little Big Town, “Good Lord Willing”


February 19, 2009

The new Little Big Town single is a hook-laden treat that combines a rustic acoustic sound with the loudest country-rock guitars this side of Jason Aldean. It’s the kind of performance that you’d expect from the Dixie Chicks today if they stayed in their “Some Days You Gotta Dance” groove.

Little Big Town’s harmonies are always intriguing but quite often they don’t go anywhere interesting over the course of the song. Here, they’re used for supporting the lead vocalist instead of being used to carry the whole song. It’s a more effective approach, in my opinion.

Grade: B+
