Little Big Town sent country-loving noggins bobbing in 2005 when "Boondocks" hit the airwaves. Country fans across the nation latched on to their gritty depiction of growing up in the South and they've followed Little Big Town's rise to the top ever since. From "Bring It On Home" to "Little White Church" and "Pontoon," LBT's Southern spin on country has continued to be some of the best, most fun music on the radio.
