Nashville, Tenn. (Tuesday, February 1, 2011) – Platinum-selling country group Little Big Town—which consists of members Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman, and Phillip Sweet—continues to build on their already incredible year that has included a top hit, “Little White Church,” #1 debut album, The Reason Why, their fourth GRAMMY nomination, and now, the news of their
2011 ACM Awards nomination in the Top Vocal Group of the Year category.
“I hold my breath hoping for a nomination every year. It was nice to wake up this morning and hear the great news,” said Schlapman in response to the nomination.
In celebration of their recent ACM and
GRAMMY nominations, the group will perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, February 8 at 12:35 AM ET/11:35 PM CT on NBC.

Little Big Town first entered the music scene over 12 years ago with hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home,” and “Good As Gone,” but it is their fourth studio album and recent chart-topping release on Capitol Records Nashville, The Reason Why, that really has people talking. The Dallas Morning News’ Mario Tarradell writes, “There’s so much vibrant authenticity and heart in Little Big Town’s sound.” Collectively, the group has earned eight ACM nominations, eight CMA Awards nominations, and, four GRAMMY nominations.
