Little Big Town’s video series ‘Scattered, Smothered & Covered’ is back! This time, the band is putting a fun spin on the The Jackson 5′s “I Want You Back.” Known for trading off lead vocals, Kimberly Schlapman is taking her turn front and center on this cover.

“I’ve always been a huge Michael Jackson fan,” Kimberly said. “But when we started listening to ‘I Want You Back’ as a cover song, I realized what a musical genius he was, even as a child.”

Shot in the Carson Center in Paducah, KY on July 15, the band got creative when choosing instruments, to make the cover sound unique. They used an upright bass, drums, a mandolin and a tambourine. LBT’s Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook’s little boy, Elijah, also contributed to the band. He let them borrow his baby rattle.
