After playing the warm-up act to Luke Bryan, Keith Urban and seemingly half of Nashville’s heavy hitters over the past decade, Little Big Town is ready to headline its own Twin Cities arena show April 5 at Target Center.

The quartet with the shimmering harmonies and equally well-sculpted hairdos will be joined by Kacey Musgraves and Midland at the gig, tickets for which go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. for $25-$60 via AXS.com or 1-888-9-AXS-TIX (but not via the arena’s box office, which is closed due to ongoing renovations).

All three acts performed together on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” last night to promote their 2018 tour, which kicks off Feb. 8 in Oklahoma City.

Formed in Nashville in the late-‘90s with roots in Alabama before that, Little Big Town first hit it big in 2005 with the singles “Boondocks” and “Bring It on Home” and has since landed three No. 1 country hits with “Pontoon,” “Girl Crush” and last year’s “Better Man.” They swung through Minnesota this summer as part of the Winstock festival and were in Minneapolis last summer opening for Bryan at the first U.S. Bank Stadium concert.

Since her first single "Merry Go Round" made waves in 2012, East Texas twanger Musgraves has been to town often, too, including everything from an opening date with Katy Perry to an appearance on "A Prairie Home Companion" that showed off her rootsier side. She's currently working on her third album afte her sophomore effort, "Pageant Material," was a commercial dud.
