Little Big Town launched their year-long artist residency, “Little Big Town at the Mother Church,” from the Ryman Auditorium last weekend with back-to-back, sold-out shows on Friday (Feb. 24) and Saturday (Feb. 25). Sam Hunt and Chris Stapleton joined the group for the Friday show while Andra Day joined Little Big Town on stage for Saturday night’s performance.

At the close of each show, the band earned complete reverence in the form of uninterrupted silence as they launched into an acoustic encore without mics aimed at paying homage to early Ryman Auditorium performances.
