Back in the summer of 2015, Miranda Lambert released a brand-new single featuring one of country music’s most successful groups…Little Big Town. That single, titled “Smokin’ and Drinkin’,” reached the 32nd spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart following its release.
“Smokin’ and Drinkin'” made it clear just how well Lambert and the folks in Little Big Town are able to work together. Lambert’s voice blended right in with everyone in the quartet, making her sound like she belonged there all along.
Since the release of “Smokin’ and Drinkin’,” Lambert has maintained friendships with the members of Little Big Town. Now, they’re taking that friendship and turning it into the driving force for an exciting new project!
As Lambert and Little Big Town announced on Thursday (January 11), they’re teaming up to take off on a co-headlining tour this summer!
