Little Big Town performed today (6/8) during SiriusXM’s The Highway “Super Fan Concert Series” held in the SiriusXM Music City Theatre at Bridgestone Arena. Lucky guests got to hear songs including “Front Porch Thing,” “Little White Church,” “Bring It On Home,” “Pontoon,”  and “Boondocks.” LBT also treated attendees to a special country performance of Lady Gaga’s hit “Born This Way” after Karen Fairchild shared, “We met a man that asked us, ‘Can you make Gaga country?,’ and we said, ‘Hell Yeah.'” After the performance, the band took questions from the audience. The show will air on SiriusXM Sun., June 10th at 9 am ET.

LBT also gave a standout performance of “Pontoon” on the CMT Music Awards Wednesday (6/6), causing sales of the single to spike 250%. Since its release two weeks ago, the song has sold nearly 100,000 downloads. “Pontoon” appears on the group’s upcoming Capitol Records album produced by Jay Joyce. The group will play LP Field during CMA Music Festival Saturday, June 9.
