Little Big Town has had a well-deserved year of hits and awards. The quartet released their first national record about 13 years ago, and now in 2012 they’ve finally nabbed their first CMA award, their first No. 1 hit, and now another new smash on Country Radio, ‘Tornado.’

Much like ‘Pontoon,’ ‘Tornado’ has immediately become a dance floor favorite. Check out the steps to the ‘Tornado’ line dance as choreographed by Gail Smith.  We hope to see you spinning around at our next GNA Country Dance Party.
