Little Big Town, whose Tornado album tops the country charts once again this week, blew into the 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' studio to perform the soon-to-be-released single that serves as the title track to the fearsome foursome's new album. (Watch the video below.)
Dressed all in black, with a wind machine blowing lead singer Karen Fairchild's black tresses back in dramatic fashion, the four vocalists harmonized on the tune that has the distinct sound of an old spaghetti-western film. At the recent celebration for their No. 1 single, "Pontoon," Karen acknowledged that gauging fan reaction to a new single can make for tricky business.
"The first few weeks is when people say, 'I hate that song' or 'I love that song,' Karen told The Boot. "We don't like to hear all that in the beginning because sometimes people change their minds about songs."
"Once it gets some momentum, we can't take our eyes off it," Kimberly Schlapman added, to which Phillip Sweet replied, "That's right, all the way to the top again, come on!"
"Tornado" will officially be released to radio on Oct. 1. The group is set to perform on the 46th Annual CMA Awards telecast from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, Nov. 1 at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
