Little Big Town's upcoming tour shares the name of the classic pop song the band and fellow Grammy winners Sugarland performed during the 2024 CMT Music Awards, which aired live from the Moody Center in Austin, Texas, on Sunday on CBS.

In a world-premiere moment, Little Big Town and Sugarland performed their rendition of “Take Me Home," originally written and released by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Phil Collins in 1985, in a circle of flashing laser lights.

Little Big Town revealed their plans to tour with Sugarland — Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, whose latest album as a duo, "Bigger," came out in 2018 — on the red carpet ahead of the awards show.

Before Sunday night, Little Big Town and Sugarland last performed on the CMT Music Awards stage together 15 years ago, when they were joined by Jake Owen for a rousing rendition of “Life In A Northern Town" on the 2008 show.

The two groups boast a combined 44 CMT Music Awards nominations and eight wins, so they have a long history with the fan-voted awards program.

Four-time CMT Music Awards winners Little Big Town hosted the show in 2018 and 2019. Their previous performances on the show include collaborating with Jamey Johnson on “Macon” in 2010, premiering their summertime anthem “Pontoon” in 2012, covering Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” with Keith Urban in 2013, getting covered in paint for the debut of their hit “Day Drinking” in 2014, collaborating with Pharrell Williams on “One Dance” in 2016, and debuting their song “Hell Yeah” in 2022.Previously on the show, four-time CMT Music Awards winners Sugarland gave a surprise performance with the B-52s of “Love Shack” in 2009, offered up a moving performance of “Stand Up” that called attention to American Red Cross Tornado Relief efforts and made their triumphant return as a duo after a five-year hiatus with their hit single “Babe” in 2018.

Plus, Nettles was honored with the inaugural CMT Equal Play Award at the 2020 CMT Music Awards in recognition for her passionate advocacy and support of women in the music industry, LGBTQ+ community and other underrepresented groups.
