I watched it and kinda liked how it opened. I have seen Little Big Town perform "The Chain" several times now and found this to be their most passionate performance of it. Nice stage and lighting for most of the performance tonight.

I liked it. I mean, nothing is going to top FM but it wasn't bad.

Mumford & Sons has been doing it live with Edward Sharpe too. Not sure if that's old news, but it's really cool to see these artists bringing new life to the song and hopefully gaining a new generation of fans for FM!

Ditto here too. I love country music.I have to watch it on TVFreeload tomorrow because I drop the extended cable after Oprah's airing of Stevie's interview.


Keith Urban's awesome live.He rocks.

I love Little Big Town and Lady Antebellum I'm not a fan of Jason Aldean though.

I wonder when CMT will air Stevie's Crossroads show.I cant wait for that to come on.

i think it's cool they did it because of the reasons you stated. but although i've seen some of their homages that were really great, i thought they did really crap job with The Chain. LBT/Urban edition was much better.

I like Mumford & Sons.I'm glad these new artists keep FM's tunes alive.

I hope it goes on forever.

Little Big Town and KU will be touring together soon, so I'm sure they'll be performing this song.

I like Keith Urban, but I cannot stand Little Big Town. Their songs are ****, and everything that's wrong with modern country music. (Pontoon? Boondocks?) I just hate that every mixed gender band draws comparisons to FM.

I got the show off of TVFreeload Downloading now ,I'll watch it later.



I prefer classic country over then the new stuff.The new stuff sounds more like rock and roll and not country but I still listen to it.I'm glad that George Strait is still going strong and keeping his sound the same as he sounded in the 1980's.

The same goes for Alan Jackson.


I will miss the late great George Jones and yes nobodies will fill his shoes from todays artists.

I had to laugh because Pontoon was one of my favorite songs months ago. I was so in love with the ... motorboatin' . But I agree exactly with what you said about every mixed band being compared to Fleetwood Mac. It's ridiculous.

Although, LBT did shamelessly rip off The Chain, so they were trying for that comparison. Michele
