CMA AWARDS 2019: Group of the Year

Little Big Town is nominated for CMA Vocal Group of the Year, an award they’ve won six times, which tied the record for wins with the Statler Brothers and Rascal Flatts in the Vocal Group category in 2017. The group is always thankful to be included in the category.

“It’s just amazing to be in that category because there’s so much talent in that category,” says the band’s Phillip Sweet. “So, we’re just very thankful.”

Lady Antebellum, Old Dominion, Midland and the Zac Brown Band are also nominated for Vocal Group of the Year.

The members of Little Big Town are making their way up the country charts with their latest song, “Over Drinking.” The humble band continues to strive to make great music, which they’ve done once again with their current single and their forthcoming album, Nightfall, which will be available in January.

The 53rd Annual CMA Awards, hosted by Carrie with special co-hosts Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton, will be broadcast live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 13th) at 8pm ET on ABC.

Also pumped to be nominated alongside two of our favorite artists/people (Dierks Bentley and Maren Morris). Love y’all.”

The two, who just released their Live From the Ryman album, are set to perform on Wednesday night with Brooks & Dunn on the Hall of Famers’ hit song, “Hard Workin’ Man.”

Having that nomination was like, oh wow, our peers do still feel like we’re doing something special and do still believe in us and that was a really nice spirit-lifter where we were like, ‘Oh my gosh. We are doing something right and we’re making music that people are enjoying,’ and that was just a huge, huge compliment. And we’re nominated with some of favorite people in the industry, so super fun.”
