Little Big Town to Perform on ‘Greatest Hits’
Little Big Town will grace the stage of Greatest Hits to perform songs that helped define music in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. The country act will join Kelsea Ballerini, who co-hosts the new six-episode music series with Arsenio Hall, later this month.
In addition to Little Big Town, musical performances will include Andra Day, Backstreet Boys, Bonnie Raitt, Boyz II Men, Ceelo, Chicago, Coolio, En Vogue, Foreigner, Jason Derulo, John Legend, LL Cool J, Meghan Trainor, Miguel, Pitbull, REO Speedwagon, Rick Springfield, Wilson Phillips, Wiz Khalifa and more.
Each episode of the music series will highlight a five-year period that focuses on the biggest hits from that time. Every week, an artist will take the stage to perform the songs made famous throughout the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. Greatest Hits premieres June 30 on ABC.
“It’s not a country record,” Karen Fairchild tells Billboard. “And it’s not like anything we’ve ever done. It’s fun to be spontaneous and put it out there to the fans, because we want to, and not to overthink it, but just because it has brought us a lot of joy, and we think it will for them as well. So why not? We’re going with our gut and putting it out there. It’s just music, you know?”
Wanderlust, Little Big Town's eight-song album, will be released on June 10.
