With their new album Tornado out next week, their hit song "Pontoon" serving as a hot summer anthem, and three Country Music Association nominations, Little Big Town has nothing but music on their minds. 

The quartet – Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet – who've been together 14 years ("And we're still having fun," says Fairchild) shared some of their favorite musical moments in the new issue of PEOPLE Country. What they shared may surprise you!

Ladies: Bring on the Romance

What does Schlapman like to sing when she's feeling romantic? "I don't spend time singing ... Let's get on with it!" she jokes.

While Fairchild's go-to tune for a lazy Sunday is Jerrod Niemann's "Shinin' on Me," she says, "It just makes me want to sit on my back porch with a glass of wine in my hand."

Gentlemen: Rock Stars in the Making

Who does the group turn to when they want to rock out? "It's got to be the Foo Fighters 'Come Alive,' " says Westbrook. "I never knew your face could be rocked off like that by a song! In my opinion, it is one of the greatest rock songs ever."

As for Sweet, he likes to keep his face intact. "For me it's U2's "Pride," he says. "Just that melody and what it's saying. I could sing it and not care what anybody thinks. You feel amazing."
