WOW, what a pairing! After working with Pharrell on their upcoming album, ‘Wanderlust,’ Little Big Town was joined by the singer/producer for an epic performance of ‘One Dance’ at the CMT Awards — and it was incredible.
The 2016 CMT Awards are all about bringing together different genres of music, which is exactly what went down when Little Big Town took the stage with Pharrell. The “Happy” singer helped to produce the band’s upcoming album, so it was only fitting that he joined them for one of the best performances of the night!

WOW, this was really unlike anything we’ve ever heard before, and we can totally hear Pharrell’s vibe on the new LBT song! But he made sure to get into the country groove, too, by wearing a full-on camoflauge outfit to the show. The up-beat, reggae-type song is SO fun, and the band was accompanied by a group of incredible dancers to complete the performance.
Little Big Town‘s new album, Wanderlust, drops on June 10, so this was the perfect opportunity for them to show off their new music. The group actually performed with Pharrell in his territory, on the season finale of The Voice, last month, and we’ve been patiently waiting for a chance to see them do it again!
“It’s not a country record. And it’s not like anything we’ve ever done,” LBT singer Karen Fairchild recently admitted to Billboard. “It’s fun to be spontaneous and put it out there to the fans because we want to, and not overthink it, but just because it has brought us a lot of joy and we think it will for them as well.” Stream music from Pharrell & Little Big Town completely unlimited and ad-free HERE.
