Little Big Town’s collaboration with Taylor Swift: Does the foursome know who inspired “Better Man?”

Given Taylor Swift’s reputation for writing songs about her exes, it seems reasonable to wonder exactly which of her boyfriends might have inspired Little Big Town’s hit “Better Man.” But if you’re thinking the CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year might know the answer to that question — well, they say you’re dead wrong.  

“The great thing is we don’t know who she wrote it about and I never want to know!” Karen Fairchild quips.

“Yeah, I don’t know,” Phillip Sweet agrees.

“We specifically didn’t ask!” Jimi Westbrook laughs.

The motivation for the soon-to-be-number-one song aside,  Little Big Town grows excited at the prospect of someday performing their Taylor-Swift-penned hit with the superstar.

“Oh sure!” Kimberly Schlapman exclaims.

“Well that would be awesome,” Karen says.

“That would be amazing,” her husband Jimi agrees.

 “… I mean, it would be great to experience that with her. I have no idea if that could happen, but that would be really fun,” Karen ponders.

“Yeah, that would be cool to collaborate with her…” Phillip says, relishing the idea. “Yes, we would love that!”

“We’ll just put it out into the world right now,” Karen offers, settling the issue.

“Better Man” is the lead single from LBT’s new album, The Breaker, which comes out next Friday, the same day the foursome kicks off their residency at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.
