Little Big Town, ‘Pontoon’ Gets a Country All-Star Tribute
We were already aware of just how infectious a single Little Big Town has with “Pontoon” (just try to get it out of your head once you hear it), but now a bevy of country stars has gone a little, uh, overboard with their love of the summertime smash!
In a video that covers a wide range of lip-synched performances of the tune from sassy to silly, their fellow artists show Little Big Town and “Pontoon” some love with their unique interpretations of the song that has quickly coasted up the charts. The all-star cast includes the quartet’s labelmates Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum, along with Carrie Underwood (performing it live in concert), Wynonna, Pistol Annies, Charlie Daniels, Sara Evans, Jake Owen, Hunter Hayes and more.
In addition to spotlighting what might be the best laugh in country music (thank you, Darius!), the cheeky clip also gives us a demonstration of motorboatin’ (the alternative to the kind done on the water, that is!) that’s probably not for the squeamish.
Back on land, the band, who just might be responsible for a rise in pontoon sales this summer, is just weeks away from the release of their fifth studio album, Tornado, on Sept. 11. Guess we can only hope the trendsetting quartet isn’t responsible for a spike in twisters this fall.
