Grammy Award-winning vocal group Little Big Town will be performing the television premiere of their new single “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: At Home Edition Monday, June 1st on NBC. The song, written by Tofer Brown, Karen Fairchild, Sean McConnell, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook was a fun moment of levity for the band and their co-writers and was completed in under an hour paying homage to friends named Jack, Jose, Brandy, Sherry, and Captain.
“Wine, Beer, Whiskey” is featured on the band’s 9th studio album Nightfall, which debuted at the top spot of Billboard’s Country Chart upon its release this past January. The song was quickly a standout garnering praise from press and fans alike.
…the singers of “Pontoon” and “Day Drinking” know how to have a party…they serve up the drinks and jam out to trumpets and marching drums on “Wine, Beer, Whiskey,” a reprieve from some of the moodier tracks on the record.
“Wine, Beer, Whiskey” is a raucous, horn-assisted party, the four members saluting bar fixtures like “Jack” and “Tito” the way old friends might as last call hits.
… funky little Mariachi tune featuring brassy horn blasts…
“Wine Beer Whiskey” is the perfect interruption…and arguably the best single choice on the record…Mariachi horns open before Sweet and Westbrook lead
an anthem that brings major “Pontoon” vibes without duplicating a thing from the

LBT (WBW) 1 OC: …we need right now. :22
“I really love the spirit of this song so much. We wrote it and it was really just like in the moment – ‘Hey, who wants a glass of wine or a beer or whiskey?’ And next thing you know we have a song, and now here we go, we’re putting it out. So, I hope the fans love it like we do. It’s a jam. It’s a party, and that’s what we need right now.”
