It has been an exciting week for fans of Little Big Town with the announcement of a new single, tour, and album. The Grammy-winning group decided to change things up a bit from their 2014 hit “Day Drinking” and released their newest single “Overdrinking” off of their highly anticipated ninth studio album Nightfall which is slated to be released January 17th, 2020.
Produced by Little Big Town, this is a song and sound, unlike anything the group has ever done and that may be surprising to all considering the group is known to have diverse musical talent. Penned by Music Row veterans: Ashley Gorley, Cary Barlowe, Hillary Lindsey, Jesse Frasure, and Steph Jones, the traditional sounding booze-filled song takes on a more non-traditional approach to what would be classic “drinking to get over you” scenario. Rather, “Overdrinking” showcases a celebratory side to moving on and taking care of yourself, with lyrics, “I’m drunk ’cause I’m happy, not drunk ’cause you’re gone.”
“Overdrinking” gives modern take on a traditional honky-tonk drinking ballad and showcases the foursome’s harmonies throughout the chorus, “I’m over drinking over you, I’m done with bottles or chasing the blues, I still go out with the boys and knock back a few, But I’m over drinking over you.” The song proves that there is a victory in what could be seen as the worst of times especially with Karen Fairchild’s convincing lead vocals singing, “I ain’t on the wagon, these wheels are still turnin’ but I’m tired of you draggin’ my heart through the dirt and the hurt/ I’m over drinkin’ over you.”
Little Big Town will perform “Overdrinking” for the first time together tomorrow on NBC’s Today Show during the 8 AM hour. In addition, the intimate Nightfall Tour with 30 scheduled dates will run from January through May at prestigious theatres across the country. Little Big Town will kick off the tour in New York City with a once in a lifetime performance at the famous Carnegie Hall, and back to back nights at Harlem’s Apollo Theatre. Tickets for the tour go on sale on September 11th at 10 AM.
