Little Big Town released a second single, “Happy People,” off their upcoming album The Breaker (due February 24th). The song brings a much-needed message of positivity and acceptance, when quick glance at any social media feed reveals our need for more optimism and togetherness. The feel-good production and lighthearted vocal style complement the laissez-faire tone of the lyrics, but ultimately the message of unity resonates above everything else.
Key Lyrics: “If you wanna know the secret, can’t buy it gotta make it / You ain’t ever gonna be it, by taking someone else’s away / Never take it for granted, you don’t have to understand it / Here’s to whatever puts a smile on your face / Whatever makes you happy people.”
The track was written by Lori McKenna and Hailey Whitters, both of whom know a thing or two about poignant, relevant songwriting. Listen to “Happy People” below:
