Little Big Town to be part of Cherry Point concert lineup

Published: Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 02:40 PM.

One of the hottest acts in country music — and one recently recognized by the Country Music Association — is coming to Cherry Point as part of the WRNS Guitar Pull scheduled for Wednesday at the base theater.

Little Big Town will be among the four acts scheduled to take the stage for the show, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and performances beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Little Big Town won CMA awards for vocal group of the year and single of the year for "Pontoon" during the Nov. 1 awards show.

"It’s a thrill to bring them in with their talent and have them perform for Eastern North Carolina and all the troops at Cherry Point," said Tommy Garrett, music and program director, and afternoon D.J. for WRNS-FM 95.1 in New Bern. "It’s as good as it gets. I’ve seen them, and their harmonies are right on. It’s probably the best I’ve ever seen."

Besides "Pontoon," the quartet’s hits also include "Boondocks" and "Little White Church."

Kelleigh Bannen is scheduled to open the fourth-annual show by singing the national anthem. Her top 40 single, "Sorry on the Rocks," is still climbing the charts.

Also set to take the stage will be Dustin Lynch, whose single "Cowboys and Angels" peaked at No. 2 on the country music charts.
