Knowing that each year on stage is a blessing, the singer posted a video of her performing alongside the band.

Can’t wait to see what y’all are up to next.”

Gaining over 53,000 views, Lambert’s post received a great deal of support from fans. One person not only congratulated Little Big Town but offered some advice to Lambert. “Congratulations LBT!!!  Miss Miranda…. I was thinking.  What about Brothers Osborne, Tyler Booth and Your Awesome Self on tour!!!  Give it some thought… No Brainer if you ask me!”

As for Strait, he wasn’t about to miss out on Little Big Town’s milestone as he also posted an image of himself sharing the stage with the band. He wrote, “Congrats to my friends, Little Big Town on 25 years! See ya in Indy on May 4!”

Again, the post gained massive support from fans as Little Big Town recently performed at the 2024 CMT Music Awards. While taking the stage with Sugarland, fans got more than a performance as the band announced the new Take Me Home Tour. And what better way to announce a tour than by performing Phil Collins’s “Take Me Home”? 

Releasing a statement about their performance with Sugarland, Little Big Town said, “Last night felt like a real homecoming for us and a full circle moment. When we toured with Sugarland last, we would all be backstage harmonizing different cover songs to try and surprise the audience every night. There’s something about this song that feels so nostalgic of that time. It really is like coming home.”
