Little Big Town was one man down for the 56th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, but that did not stop the band from giving fans an incredible performance. 

In January 2020, Little Big Town released the album Nightfall. The album earned the band a fourth No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts. The band also released an acoustic version of their June 2020 single “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” in early 2021. The song arrived just a week after Little Big Town announced the original version cracked 100 million global streams.
