One of the songs from Little Big Town’s latest album The Breaker is one Tim McGraw really wanted. Apparently, the country superstar wasn’t afraid of telling this to the group either during last month’s ACM Awards.
“I was strolling off and Tim McGraw is standing there and he was like, ‘Damn you. I wanted that song,” Little Big Town member Jimi Westbrook told Billboard. The song McGraw was referring to was the group’s track “Happy People,” which was written by Lori McKenna.
While Little Big Town may have been able to get this one, Westbrook knew McGraw had his fair share of McKenna tracks.
“I said, ‘You got the last one buddy. We’re even'” Westbrook recalled (in reference to McGraw’s chart-topping hit “Humble and Kind”).
“Happy People” is featured on Little’ Big Town’s number one album The Breaker. The album also features the group’s Taylor Swift penned song “Better Man.”
