NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The members of country group Little Big Town are hoping their new song is a hit — on TV.

They co-wrote and recorded the theme song for ABC's new show "Good Afternoon America." The song is called "Good Afternoon." The nine week summer series starts Monday (2 p.m. ET), anchored by Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer.

Little Big Town singer Karen Fairchild calls it an unexpected opportunity and says the band loved getting the chance to write and record a song for the show.

They'll perform the tune on air Aug. 2 along with their hit single "Pontoon."

The group also includes Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet. They are known for hits such as "Boondocks" and "Little White Church."
