The new album by Little Big Town, The Breaker, is the biggest attraction from the final music shopping date in February 2017.
It’s here – the final music release date in the Month of February 2017! Recapping on last week, anticipated new efforts arrived from Alison Krauss (Windy City), Charlie Wilson (In It to Win It), and Jidenna (The Chief) among others. Also, there was one huge surprise – a new album from Future simply titled Future. This week, things are a shade quieter, though any time Little Big Town drops a new album (The Breaker), it’s “kind of a big deal.”
1. Little Big Town, The Breaker
Little Big Town released an EP in late 2016. That EP, entitled Wanderlust, didn’t exactly go anywhere, nor appease traditional country fans. That said, “Girl Crush” from their previous album had its fair share of skeptics. Regardless, Little Big Town returns to form on their latest album, The Breaker, its first since Pain Killer (2014).
