Opry Entertainment launches exclusive artist-curated merchandise line with LBT

Opry Entertainment, together with Opry member group Little Big Town, took friends and family to the “boondocks” earlier this week to celebrate the debut of their exclusive artist-curated merchandise line.

The line, which features a collection inspired by lyrics in Little Big Town’s hit song, “Boondocks,” is part of a larger retail collaboration between Opry Entertainment and the CMA/ACM Vocal Group of the year. Three additional collections, each inspired by Little Big Town’s music, will be announced throughout the year.

“The relationship we have with Little Big Town is a special one that began over 15 years ago when they first appeared on the Opry stage,” said Opry Entertainment COO Michael Guth. “Opry Entertainment is uniquely positioned to help share their stories and deepen connections with their fans through the residency at the historic Ryman Auditorium, through our social and digital channels, and now through this exciting retail collection.”

As revealed in a special Opry House backstage launch party, the merchandise collection celebrates the southern living that inspired one of Little Big Town’s biggest hits. The members of Little Big Town –Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook–were on hand before their finale performance on Tuesday’s Grand Ole Opry to talk about the inspiration and personal stories behind the collection which includes apparel, leather goods, jewelry, and totes, among other items.

“There’s so much of where—as the song says—we all came from ingrained in each of these pieces,” said Fairchild. “We can’t wait to share it with our friends and fans and see what everyone thinks.”

“We’re excited about this collection and its companion collections coming later this year,” said Kim O’Dell, Opry Entertainment vice president, retail. “Little Big Town’s great style reaches beyond just the group’s music into fashion, home goods, and more. It has been an honor to develop a line that is so reflective of this group’s individual and collective passions. I know their fans across the globe are going to love having another way to share in the feel-good fun that is Little Big Town.”

The merchandise collection is exclusively available on Opry Entertainment websites and in Opry Entertainment retail stores in Nashville, TN.

The launch of the collection marks the latest of several recent milestones for Little Big Town. Earlier this year, their new album, The Breaker, debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200, marking the group’s fourth Top 10 project on the Billboard 200 chart. The album features their current hit at country radio, “Happy People” as well the two-week #1 single, “Better Man.” The group is also currently in the middle of its 2017 residency at Opry Entertainment’s lauded Ryman Auditorium, in celebration of the venue’s 125-year history.

New Single: ‘Happy People’

Reigning ACM Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town hit the stage last night at the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards for an uplifting performance of “Happy People,” the new single off their chart-topping latest album, The Breaker. Following “one of the most memorable performances of the 2017 ACM Awards” (Billboard), the “fearless foursome” (HITS Magazine) earned their fourth ACM for Vocal Group of the Year. This year’s nomination for ACM Vocal Group of the Year marked the Platinum-selling artists’ 23rd career Academy of Country Music award nomination.

Written by Lori McKenna and Hailey Whitters, “Happy People” has already earned critical acclaim and early radio support as one of the most-added songs this week at country radio, and is the follow up single to Little Big Town’s multi-week No. 1 at Country radio, “Better Man.”

Tim Roberts, VP of Country Programming for CBS Radio calls the song “sunshine on the speakers with a positive message and LBT summertime fun…it all adds up to another big hit!” and Taste of Country notes, “more than anything, ‘Happy People’ just feels good.”

Little Big Town and Hunter Hayes to headline Stadium of Fire

Stadium of Fire lit the fuse toward ticket sales with the announcement Wednesday morning that Little Big Town and Hunter Hayes will be the musical acts headlining this year’s event at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

Grammy Award-winners Little Big Town will be the overall headliner and are appearing on the heels of the release of their new album, “The Breaker,” in February.

“We feel thrilled about Little Big Town coming to Stadium of Fire,” said Paul Warner, executive director of America’s Freedom Festival at Provo, in a news release. “They are the reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year. They just recently won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Country Group. And their single “Better Man,” written by Taylor Swift for the group, has already sold half a million copies in less than six months. I don’t think there’s anyone hotter right now.”

Little Big Town is composed of four members — Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman and Jimi Westbrook. The country stars first hit the music scene 18 years ago. The band has achieved big success behind No. 1 singles “Pontoon,” “Tornado” and “Girl Crush” (the best-selling country single of 2015), and the recent “Better Man.”

Little Big Town has an impressive list of awards, winning Best Country Group/Duo Performance at the 2016 Grammy Awards along with “Girl Crush,” which won the grammy that year for Best Country Song. The group also was recently honored by the Academy of Country Music for Vocal Group of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year with Miranda Lambert, along with earning the Crystal Milestone Award. Additionally, the band was honored as the 2016 Music Business Association Artist of the Year in 2016.

Hayes will be handling the undercard duties at Stadium of Fire. The 25-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist hit it big with his debut album in 2011. The self-titled debut record reached No. 7 on the Billboard 200 as well as going to No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart. Hayes not only co-wrote every song, he also played every instrument and co-produced the album. His smash single “Wanted” hit No. 1 on the Country Songs chart, making him, at 20 years old, the youngest solo male act to achieve that distinction.

Other hits by Hayes include “I Want Crazy” and “Somebody’s Heartbreak.” On Sept. 9, in conjunction with his 25th birthday, Hayes released three new songs from his as-yet-untitled forthcoming album. The three songs are “Yesterday’s Song,” “Young Blood” and “Amen.”

“There’s a lot of love for Hunter Hayes in this community,” Warner said. “He’s such a tremendous talent and will add so much to the show. We’re so pleased that he will be joining us on July 1 — the show wouldn’t be complete without him.”

Tickets to Stadium of Fire will go on sale to the general public on Friday at 9 a.m. at the BYU Marriott Center ticket office and online at stadiumoffire.com. Members of the Freedom Festival email list will have the option to buy tickets beginning Thursday. Visit stadiumoffire.com if you wish to sign up for advance ticket opportunities.

This year’s Stadium of Fire will take place on July 1, a Saturday, and will be the feature event of the city’s full Freedom Festival schedule.

Stadium of Fire is entering its 37th year. Little Big Town and Hayes should fit right in, as Stadium of Fire has primarily featured country music acts throughout most of its history. The event, which celebrates independence and love of country, also will be televised to over 1 million military men and women in more than 100 countries via the Armed Forces Network.
