Little Big Town was one of the many artists that filled in for Naomi Judd, who passed away in April, on The Judds Final Tour. It was a night to remember for the band this past weekend (10/14-15).

Before they did the show, the group admitted that they were nervous, but also couldn’t wait. Karen Fairchild told us, “That’s gonna be pretty epic and daunting and humbling; we’re so grateful. I know for us as a band, when we’ve had these kinds of collaborations before, they end up being these defining moments in our career. I know just from seeing Wy a few times recently that the night that we get to spend with her honoring her mom and their legacy of music that has had such an impact on us.”

She added, “I know that it will creep into the things that we do in the future. It just always does. You know, when you get to be around people the then pioneers in music, you can’t help, but you want to rub up next to it and hope that something gets into your soul.”

Fairchild was more than ready, saying, “I have my own private list of songs that I hope we get to do. It makes me sweat thinking about it.”

LBT performed with Wynonna on tour this past Saturday, a day that also happened to be the group’s Kimberly Schlapman’s birthday. After the show, they posted to Instagram clips from the special night, writing, “It was an absolute DREAM performing with Wynonna on The Judds tour dates this weekend.”

Kimberly posted, “Still on cloud 9 from the weekend with @wynonnajudd @littlebigtown & @martinamcbride ! Thanks for all the birthday wishes.”

Wynonna continued the love fest, posting on Instagram, “It was an absolute honor singing with @phillipsweet, @jimiwestbrook, @karenfairchild & @ohgussie this weekend. I consider them family now! The bond was instant and is so strong. I look forward to singing with them in the future!!! Thank you, @littlebigtown and @martinamcbride, for one of the greatest weekends of my life.”

Kimberly responded to her post, “SO MUCH FUN & we love & adore you to pieces!!!”
