Little Big Town Are One ‘Big Hillbilly, Gypsy Family’
Little Big Town spend a good amount of time together on the road playing shows and events like the current Country Throwdown tour. The tight-knit quartet have added to their brood with families of their own the past few years as well, so you'd think when they get a little time off away from each other they'd cherish it, right? Not so, according to LBT member Kimberly Schlapman, who says the group not only travel together on the same bus, they spends their days off in a pack as well!
"It's certainly a gypsy lifestyle, because we've got three families on one bus," Kimberly tells Maverick magazine. "Luckily these days we're traveling on two buses and trailers. The four of us and our families on one bus. And our nannies and crew travel on the other bus. We are just a big, hillbilly, gypsy family I guess. And we are pretty much always together when we are off the road or in the studio or if we are taking time off. We don't really take time apart from each other. We are very involved in each other's lives. We love it that way."
The gypsy hillbilly clan are on the charts again these days with the sassy romp, 'Little White Church.' Earlier this year they became one of the few modern country acts to break onto the BBC Radio 2 playlist with their song, 'Fine Line.'
The Country Throwdown tour continues with a show in Charlotte, N.C. on Thursday, May 27, and Raleigh, N.C.
