Check Out the Song Taylor Swift Penned for Little Big Town
When Little Big Town released their latest single “Better Man,” they didn’t reveal the track’s writer. Instead, group member Karen Fairchild simply said it was composed by “a young girl in Nashville who wrote it by herself,” via Rolling Stone. However, today (Nov. 1, 2016), the quartet dropped the track’s music video and revealed just who that girl from Nashville actually is: Taylor Swift.
In a press conference today, they explained why they kept the single’s originator a secret until now.
“We didn’t want you to have any subtext there other than to hear the song,” Fairchild explained. Despite fans not knowing who was behind the track, Little Big Town enjoyed the best day of radio play in their entire career when they dropped “Better Man.”
“We were like ‘Damn, we were right! This is a good song,'” she continued.
Here’s the new single:
Little Big Town’s forthcoming album The Breaker arrives Feb. 24, 2017.
