Little Big Town, Trisha Yearwood Win Daytime Emmy Awards
Trisha Yearwood and Little Big Town have each amassed numerous awards and accolades for their music careers, and now the country acts can add a prestigious TV award to their collections as well. They were both the recipients of a Daytime Emmy Award on Sunday night (June 16), in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Yearwood’s Food Network series, ‘Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,’ tied with the network’s ‘Best Thing I Ever Made’ for the Emmy for Outstanding Culinary Program . The 48-year-old, who is currently filming her third season of ‘Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,’ has featured everything on the program from Garth’s Breakfast Bowl to her famous — and decadent — peanut brittle.
Grammy-winning vocal group Little Big Town also nabbed their first Emmy for Outstanding Original Song for ‘Good Afternoon,’ the theme song for the ABC program ‘Good Afternoon America.’
“Wow. We just won a#DaytimeEmmy!!!!” the band tweeted upon hearing the good news. “We’re freaking out!!!”
Yearwood is dividing her time between working on a new album and filming more episodes of ‘Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.’ LBT will perform several headlining shows this summer in addition to joining Keith Urban on his Light the Fuse tour, which kicks off on July 18 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
