Little Big Town's "Better Man" won the 2018 Grammy Awards trophy for Best Country Duo / Group Performance on Sunday (Jan. 28). The honor was handed out during the Premiere Ceremony, which streamed online before the televised awards show.

The band was not there to accept the award. Instead, presenter Paul Shaffer joked that he was going to take the trophy home and put it on his mantle.

"Better Man" has been a massive hit. LBT waited until after its release to share part of the secret to its success: It was written by Taylor Swift.

Other nominees for the Best Country Duo / Group Performance award at the 2018 Grammys were "It Ain't My Fault" by the Brothers Osborne, "My Old Man" by Zac Brown Band, "You Look Good" by Lady Antebellum and "Drinkin' Problem" by Midland.
