Little Big Town blasts off into the galaxy with their cover of the Elton John classic, "Rocket Man." The country quartet took to YouTube last week to share audio of their cover that will appear on next month's Sir Elton tribute album, Restoration. "One of the main reasons why we chose 'Rocket Man' was because we were so intrigued by not just, of course, Elton John, but by using the sounds from the Juno project, so we had all these Jupiter noises," says LBT's Karen Fairchild. "We were like, 'What if we did the a capella version of "Rocket Man" on the Elton record?' [Our producer] Frank Liddell loved that idea, and we were off to the races." Restoration arrives on April 6.
