Grammy Award-winning group Little Big Town are taking country radio by storm with their latest single "Day Drinking," the lead offering to their sixth studio set Painkiller. Set to drop Oct. 21, the 13-track project, produced by Jay Joyce, features eight co-writes from the harmonious band. "Sometimes you don't know what's going to happen in the studio. You just have to dive in head first and work hard to do something unique," singer Karen Fairchild shares in a statement on Monday (July 14).

"We're always striving and pushing ourselves to go somewhere new. Pain Killer is a new place for sure," she says of the album. Teaming up with such esteemed Nashville songwriters as Troy Verges (Hunter Hayes' "Wanted," Carrie Underwood's "Wasted"), Natalie Hemby (Miranda Lambert's "White Liar," Little Big Town's "Pontoon"), Shane McAnally (Kacey Musgraves' "Follow Your Arrow"), Liz Rose (Taylor Swift's "All Too Well") and Lori McKenna, Little Big Town hopes to take their accomplished careers to the next level.

“Individually, they are four of the best singers in the world,” Mike Dungan, Chairman/CEO of Universal Music Group Nashville, boasts of the group who has been together for an impressive 15 years. “Together, they are awe-inspiring. As a band, they are forever focused on taking it to the next level. The result is Pain Killer…simply the best one yet.”

Painkiller follows the platinum success of Tornado, released in 2012, which spawned such hits as "Pontoon" and the title song.
