GRAMMY, CMA, CMT, and ACM award-winning country supergroup, Little Big Town, is set to release the song of the summer, “Summer Fever,” Wednesday, June 6th to Country radio and all digital service providers.
LBT’s Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook will open the 2018 CMT Music Awards that same day with a performance of “Summer Fever” and continue as the night’s hosts for the duration of the show.
The track, co-written by Fairchild, Jesse Frasure, Cary Barlowe, and Sam Romans features Fairchild on lead vocals and encapsulates the spirit of summertime with an infectious melody and nostalgic guitar tones set against the group’s famous four-part harmonies.
“Summer Fever” was co-produced by Frasure and Shane McAnally and mixed by Spike Stent in Los Angeles. “It’s always amazing when a song seems to just wait for its own perfect timing,” said Frasure. “Getting the chance to bring this song to life in the writing room with my co-writers, and through the opportunity to co-produce with my friend Shane McAnally has been a dream come true. I can’t wait to hear this song coming out of a rolled down window this Summer.”
“I dare you to sit still when this song comes on…it’s impossible,” said McAnally. “I don’t even dance, but something comes over me when this thing kicks in. I can’t wait for the world to catch Summer Fever.”
