LOS ANGELES (AP) — Little Big Town get pitched hundreds of songs. For some reason, the one called “Pontoon” stuck out for Jimi Westbrook.

He says part of the appeal is that he couldn’t figure out why someone would write a song about a pontoon. He says it’s got “such a sexy groove and it was cool hearing a chick sing about it.” Karen Fairchild says they tried simplifying the production on it but it didn’t feel the same.

She says they weren’t sure it would get any radio play but “the fans seem to dig it.”
