Sounds too easy, but it’s really that simple. Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild told ET Online said that she “love(d) the first songs off (Midland’s) record, the traditional country sound” and thinks that Kacey (Musgraves) is a songwriter and entertainer that will “be around for a long, long, long time”.

Kacey Musgraves and Midland (Jess Carson, Cameron Duddy and Mark Wystrach), joined Little Big Town to appear on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Sept. 20 in celebration the LBT’s tour announcement. All the artists took to the stage for a medley of Midland’s hit “Drinkin’ Problem,” Musgraves’ “Merry Go Round” and also performed the 1979 Electric Light Orchestra hit “Don’t Bring Me Down”.

The Breakers Tour begins February 8th in Oklahoma City and includes almost 30 cities.
