Watch Little Big Town’s New Video for ‘Sober’
By Annie Reuter
Little Big Town are tugging at the heartstrings with their latest video for “Sober.”
The bittersweet love song off their 2012 album, Tornado features Kimberly Schlapman singing about how love is the best drug. “When I die, I don’t want to go sober,” she sings. The song also touches on the loss she felt after her first husband died of a heart attack in 2005.
“I have experienced what it means to lose the love of your life,” Schlapman told People. “And I’ve experience what it feels like to love again after great loss, so this song touches me so deeply in my heart.”
Not to say she’s the only band member that relates to the track. Karen Fairchild, who is married to fellow bandmate Jimi Westbrook, said “Sober” also holds special meaning to her, reminding of her of when she first fell in love with Westbrook.
Directed by Reid Long, the clip gives fans a look at what it’s like to be on tour with the band, featuring them perform the song during their tour last year, along with behind the scenes footage.
