Which Little Big Town Bandmate Wants To Be An Astrophotographer?

We've heard of photographers who photograph stars on the red carpet, but how often do we hear of stars who only want to photograph the moon and planets? This unusual hobby is truly out of this world, and it's one that Little Big Town's Jimi Westbrook admitted he was enjoying! 

Ahead of their studio album, 'Nightfall' due on January 17, Little Big Town joined Cody Alan in the CMT Radio studio where Jimi broke the news. "My sweet wife bought me an unbelievable telescope. I kind of had this idea that I wanted to be an astrophotographer. I have the means now. When you see the pictures that are taken with this thing, it's unbelievable." 

As it turns out, Jimi isn't alone in being a space pic hobbyist. Keith Urban is also a stargazer! 

"He has a great telescope!" says Karen Fairchild

"You know that I recommended his?" Jimi jumped in. "He went way bigger than the one I suggested."

"He has a small observatory!" laughs bandmate Phillip Sweet.
