Little Big Town has a lot to celebrate this week as their latest album, Nightfall, debuted at the top of Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

This release marks Little Big Town’s fourth No.1 album, following previous releases, The Reason Why (2010), Tornado (2012) and The Breaker (2017).

Released January 17,  Nightfall features 13 tracks, including the band’s current single, “Over Drinking,” and the Grammy-nominated “The Daughters.”

For the first time in their career, the members of Little Big Town took on the sole producer role, which is something they are “super proud of.”

“We produced this record for the very first time,” Kimberly Schlapman said. “We’ve never done that before.”

“We’ve co-produced before, but never taken the reins fully,” Karen Fairchild added. “It’s quite the task.”

Between them, the members of LBT also co-wrote nine of the album’s 13 tracks.

The award-winning quartet is taking the new album and a slew of their previous hits on the road for The Nightfall Tour, which features special guest Caitlyn Smit and runs through May 2.
