Who Wrote Little Big Town’s New Song?

Little Big Town were full of surprises yesterday: In addition to announcing an upcoming residency at the Ryman Auditorium, the group also revealed that their newest single, “Better Man,” was written by country-turned-pop superstar Taylor Swift.

“She sent us this song, and it was one that was really special to her,” Karen Fairchild shared at a press conference. “She thought of us because of the harmonies. She’s never pitched a song to anyone before, and the moment that we heard it, we were like, ‘Man, that is a song that we’re going to cut.’”
