Little Big Town’s latest single “Summer Fever” is set for release June 6th with the television debut performance happening on the 2018 CMT Music Awards that night. The official music video will make its world premiere in a special cross-channel debut on CMT, CMT Music, MTV Live and MTVU the following morning. A countdown clock began today counting down the minutes until the day of the big premiere.
The video, directed by TK McKamy, will begin airing at 4am EST on CMT and 6am EST on CMT Music every hour throughout music hours. Fans can get an early preview beginning at Midnight EST on Wednesday, June 6 exclusively on CMT.com. The video will also air across MTV Live, MTVU and be featured along with new interviews in a special Music Awards edition of “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” airing June 9th and 10th at 9 a.m. EST.
The video was shot along Florida’s stunning 30A coastline and features Jimi, Karen, Kimberly, and Phillip biking through Watersound Beach, strolling along the boardwalk, and ending in a full-blown beach party alongside two of the song’s co-writers Jesse Frasure and Cary Barlowe.
CMT and Little Big Town are partnering all week with the foursome serving as hosts for Country Music’s loudest night, the 2018 Music Awards. This will mark the first time the group has hosted a major award show. Historically, the band has launched previous #1 summer hits on the CMT Music Awards with “Pontoon” in 2012 and “Day Drinking” in 2014.
