Country music quartet Little Big Town released its eighth album “The Breaker” last year, but just in time for the warmer weather, the group released “Summer Fever” earlier this month.

Though it’s still early, the quartet – Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook – has already had a big summer.

Not only did they host the CMT Music Awards, they were also nominated for Performance of the Year for “Stand Up for Something” and “I Won’t Back Down” and Group Video of the Year for “When Someone Stops Loving You,” the latter of which they won.

Little Big Town also released the video for its cover of “Rocket Man,” part of “Restoration: Reimagining the Songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin,” in May.

Shortly after playing Northern Quest Resort and Casino on Monday, the band, known for its four-part vocal harmonies, will head to Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum for the opening of “Little Big Town: The Power of Four.”

The exhibit honors and looks back on the group’s 20-year history through photos and memorabilia like the neon signs used on the cover of 2014’s “Pain Killer,” the sundress Fairchild wore when she and Westbrook married in 2006 and instruments band members have played during various performances.

“Having an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is something we would never have thought to dream of for ourselves,” Fairchild said in a statement. “It is beyond a dream come true. We are honored to be a part of country music, and are so thankful to all our fans, the music community here in Nashville and the museum for this privilege.”
