Little Big Town reveals the most important piece of luggage they took to Australia

ABC/Image Group LAFor the first time in their career, Little Big Town is in Australia, performing for country music fans down under. And it's a family affair. The entire gang is taking their families, including Kimberly Schlapman's newly adopted daughter, Dolly.

"If you would like to get on an eighteen-hour flight to Australia with us and all of our kids, you know you wanna! Come along for the ride," the band's Karen Fairchild chimed in. "That is a long time, and Elijah, too, is going how many hours? We’re taking them all. We want them to experience it. We are gonna spend some extra time there," said dad Jimi Westbrook

Although the group's official performances don't start until Tuesday, they've overcome at least one hurdle to get to Australia: traveling with the kids. The band has a secret weapon -- says Karen, "We’ll have iPads ready, full of every children’s movie you could ever dream up."

But Friday, we’ll get our first taste of his own music, as Morgan releases his first single for Warner Nashville, titled “Kiss Somebody.”

On his socials, Morgan teases a special “prelude” video that’s coming as well. Inspired by the song’s lyric “sometimes you’ve got to kiss somebody in the back of a cab,” the new clip finds Morgan performing the tune in a vintage taxi, as he rides around Music City on a hot summer night.

As for the person Morgan happens to be kissing in real life, Kelsea has teased that the two definitely plan to make their union official before 2017 comes to a close.
