Turn The Lights On

Album: Pain Killer (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Little Big Town penned this life-affirming track with their producer Jay Joyce plus songwriters Natalie Hemby (LBT's "Pontoon") and Jeremy Spillman (Eric Church's "Hell on the Heart").

    "We were talking about when you're chasing something that you want to do as an artist, and you get knocked down or you're gonna get rejected, you have to decide what you're gonna do at that moment," explained LBT's Karen Fairchild. "You're either gonna pick yourself up and be a better artist, better person, or you're just gonna lie down and take it and just go away. We see it happen all the time. So many talented people come to Nashville and some quit, and they might be the best singers and songwriters and they just give up, because they get knocked down a couple of times."
