Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook Add Furry Family Member
Little Big Town just got a bit bigger … and furrier. Members Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook — also husband and wife — have announced that they've added a new family member.
Introducing Honey Westbrook, an adorable light brown pup who looks to be a spaniel mix. Fairchild posted two sweet photos of the new girl in town on Instagram, one with her son Elijah, who looks thrilled to welcome Honey into the family, and another closeup of the puppy.
Perhaps Honey will become a road dog and spend time on the LBT tour bus, but for now, she’s soaking up the love at her new home.
Little Big Town recently released a new single called “Better Man,” written by Taylor Swift. LBT says Swift actually sent them the song unexpectedly, but that they jumped at the chance to record it.
“That chorus … from the first time I heard it, I fell in love with it,” Westbrook says. “It’s so built for our harmonies, and that’s probably why, maybe, she thought of us.”
The song has already blown up after the group performed it on the 50th anniversary CMA Awards in early November. It’s slated to appear on a forthcoming new album titled The Breaker, due out in February 2017. The sentimental video for the song was released shortly after the song and is a testament to its thoughtful lyrics and the band’s skillful delivery. The quartet took home the award for Vocal Group of the Year at the CMAs and are gearing up for a residency at the Ryman in 2017 as part of its 125th anniversary celebration.
