Little Big Town is restarting their postponed 2020 headline tour of small clubs. The country music group announced new dates for the remaining shows of their Nightfall Tour.
The tour, scheduled to span through a period of four weeks is believed to sweep audiences off their feet. The short-run will find Little Big Town bringing their lush country harmonies to intimate venues across the U.S., alongside openers Ashley Ray and Caitlyn Smith.
Kickstarting with a three-night stand at the Paramount Theater in Denver, Colorado, the Nightfall Tour will now continue through November 4 – 5 at Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Little Big Town Nightfall Tour
The Little Big Town band started the Nightfall Tour in early 2020 but was unable to complete it due to the Coronavirus outbreak. They welcomed the news with a post on social media, announcing rescheduled dates at the tour’s original venues.
In the post, the group wrote “Nightfall Tour… returns. We can’t wait to see you back out on the road!”
Along with the stops mentioned above, the tour will also visit cities like Salt Lake City, Utah; Detroit, Michigan; Richmond, Virginia; and more. Presale tickets are available now, and the band released their Nightfall album in January of 2020.

Who are Little Big Town Singers?
Little Big Town is an American country music group founded in 1998 by group members, Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman (formerly Roads), Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook. Their musical style rests heavily on four-part vocal harmonies, with all four members alternating as lead vocalists.
Their Journey to Fame
Following their first recording deal with the Mercury Nashville Records label which produced no singles or albums, Little Big Town released its self-titled debut on Monument Records in 2002. Fortunately, it produced two minor country chart singles before the group left the label. By 2005, the group had been signed to Equity Music Group, an independent record label owned by Clint Black.
The second Little Big Town album, The Road to Here, came out the same year and received a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Their third album, A place to Land was released through Equity, then re-released through Capitol Nashville after Equity packed up in 2008. Five more albums have followed for Capitol: The Reason Why (2010), Tornado (2012), Pain Killer (2014), The Breaker (2017), and Nightfall (2020).
Their albums have accounted for 24 singles on Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay, including the No. 1 single “Pontoon”, “Girl Crush”, and “Better Man” along with the top 10 hits “Boondocks”, “Bring It On Home”, “Little White Church”, “Tornado”, and “Day Drinking”
