Little Big Town was also announced as one of the first performances on the show performing “Pontoon” off of their upcoming fifth studio album. “Pontoon,” written by Barry Dean, Natalie Hemby and Luke Laird, has already created quite a buzz before its official release to radio (April 30th) and has been described as “the single of the summer.”
