Little Big Town is releasing their latest single, "Hell Yeah," on Monday, April 11. The song is the first single released by the ACM, CMA and GRAMMY-winning band in two years and will be on their forthcoming 10th studio album.
The new record follows the No. 1 Country album Nightfall (released in 2020) which included singles "Over Drinking," GRAMMY-nominated "The Daughters" and "Wine, Beer, Whiskey." The latest release, "Hell Yeah," will make its radio World Premiere on iHeart at 2:00 pm ET on April 11. That evening, the band will also debut the song with a special performance on the CMT Music
Awards airing at 8:00 pm ET on CBS.
"Phillip and I wrote this with Tyler Hubbard
and Corey Crowder," said LBT's Jimi Westbrook. "I remember when Corey brought that hook in that day. He sang his idea and when he turned that phrase at the end of the chorus, we were all like 'hell yeah!' We always have a blast writing with those guys."
"This song is a classic breakup song, flipped upside down," continued Sweet. "It's pure feel-good vibes. We are so excited to premiere it on the CMT Music
Awards which has always been a home for us in releasing new music. Big thanks to iHeart for the radio World Premiere. Hell yeah!"
