Little Big Town took home the award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Girl Crush” at the 2016 Grammy Awards this afternoon (February 15), putting a wrap on the best year of their career.
For the award they beat out Brothers Osborne’s “Stay a Little Longer,” Joey + Rory’s “If I Needed You,” Charles Kelley, Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay for “The Driver” and Blake Shelton and Ashley Monroe’s duet, “Lonely Tonight.”
The group were all smiles as they took the stage during the pre-televised part of the ceremony, with Kimberly Schlapman exclaiming, “Oh my stars! Oh my goodness!” as she approached the microphone.
“What a journey,” Phillip Sweet said before Karen Fairchild thanked “the beautiful writers of this song, Liz Rose, Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna … thank you for bringing us to this big old party, [producer] Jay Joyce for killing this record in the studio…just made the most beautiful, beautiful music.”
The televised part of the show will include performances from Carrie Underwood with Sam Hunt, Chris Stapleton and Luke Bryan and will be on CBS at 7:00.
