I’ll be the first to admit that there was a period of time that I just didn’t get Little Big Town. Of course, once I really started paying attention to the foursome it didn’t take me long to see that they are the nicest, most talented and creative people to ever be in a singing group together. They push each other, they celebrate others and they can sing any single song you ask them to sing– that’s why they perform at every single awards show or tribute ever.
Most recently, the group was asked to sing “Rocket Man” on Restoration, which pairs a number of Elton John classics with current stars’ take on them. LBT also performed the tune during the 53rd Annual ACM Awards and while they nailed the song, Twitter hated their outfits. Which is where the whole– you have to know Little Big Town to understand them. And their outfits were one of the highlights of the evening for me.

First off, it should be noted that Little Big Town hasn’t always been this fashion-forward. Second, this was a tribute to Elton John– what were they supposed to wear? Denim on denim just wouldn’t work for this.
If you don’t get LBT, that’s unfortunate because they are truly doing good in the world and they’re doing it in fabulous outfits.
Also, these harmonies.
