Your Side Of The Bed by Little Big Town

Album: TornadoReleased: 2012Charted:
96
  • The Little Big Town quartet share co-writing credits with Lori McKenna on this yearning Country ballad. "I love that this lyric is so brutally honest," said Karen Fairchild. "There are times in a relationship when you allow things to come between you, so much so that it feels like an incredibly long way back to each other. It's a lonely place to be especially when you're lying right next to someone you love."
  • The song is sung as a duet between married band members Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook.
  • The song's music video was shot in April 2013 by Becky Fluke (Pistol Annies/The Civil Wars). The clip takes place at the historic Tennessee Theater and The Oliver Hotel in Knoxville, Tennessee and captures a look into one night, highlighting the tension and honesty in the song's lyrics.
  • The song wasn't written or intended as a duet. "When we wrote this song with Lori McKenna, we didn't know it was going to be a duet. We wrote it from one person's perspective," Fairchild told CMT. "It was on accident that it became a duet."

    She continued: "Clearly, Jimi and I live together, so when we were brainstorming on what should go on the record and what shouldn't, we were going through that song. There were just the two of us in the kitchen and we were like, 'Man, that makes a cool duet!'"

This is Little Big Town at its peak; I have goosebumps even as I write this. The lyrics, yes, they are absolutely amazing; breathtakingly, heart-achingly beautiful. Yet the vocal harmonies are what send chills through my body. I mean, they have the voice of angels, and even tho it's a sad love song, I get the feeling like I'm in church listening to the choir when I hear it. Excellent accompanying video as well.Camille - Toronto, Oh
