OFFSTAGE: Little Big Town Hashtags Their Grammy Win

Published on February 11, 2013 by CMT News

Little Big Town
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Kimberly Schlapman’s hashtag said it all. “#14yearsinthemaking,” she wrote after tweeting
“Oh my stars!!” The Little Big Town singer was obviously thrilled
that the group won their first Grammy on Sunday (Feb. 10). They won best country
duo/group performance for “Pontoon,” beating out Eli
Young Band
‘s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,”
Taylor Swift and the
Civil Wars
‘ “Safe Sound,” the Time
Jumpers
‘ “On the Outskirts of Town” and Don Williams and Alison
Krauss
‘ “I Just Came Here for The Music.” The quartet’s Jimi Westbrook told reporters backstage after the win that he
remembered those years of driving around in a van and putting together concert merchandise on the way to shows. “To stand
up here, it’s an absolutely unbelievable moment,” he said. And the band’s Karen Fairchild added, “When we were looking up
there … your heart starts to race a little bit and you’re thinking, ‘Is it possible that they could call our name?’ Then
you look at the people in your category, and you’re thinking, ‘No, it probably won’t happen,’” she said. “But then it did!”
