Little Big Town Win 2015 ACM Award for Vocal Group of the Year
"What an honor to be here tonight at the ACMs and to win this award," Karen Fairchild said. "Two things: We really wanted to bring big hair back to country music ... and you gave us George Strait, and we slow danced in college to George Strait."
It has definitely been Little Big Town's year. Fresh off the success of their 2012 Tornado album, the foursome released their latest Pain Killer record, which spawned the No. 1 single, "Day Drinking," as well as the controversial "Girl Crush," which is still rapidly climbing the charts. They also launched their successful 2014 Pain Killer Tour, with Brett Eldredge and Brothers Osborne serving as their opening acts.
Perhaps most notably, Little Big Town were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, fulfilling a dream each of them held since childhood.
“This feels like the biggest moment of our lives and our career,” band member Kimberly Schlapman said.
“I’m so excited about sharing this moment with the band," Karen Fairchild added. "We’ve been through the highest of highs together, and this is sure to be the highest. This is as good as it gets.”
This is LBT's second ACM Award for Vocal Group of the Year. They previously won in the category in 2013, and have been nominated in the category nine times.
