Exciting news for the crew of Little Big Town! According to a press release, bandmembers of Little Big Town will be honored on April 18 in Washington, D.C. at the 2018 GRAMMYs on the Hill Awards for their contributions to the music industry.
“Little Big Town’s advocacy efforts, coupled with the legislative momentum on Capitol Hill to protect creators, further the Academy’s vision of a brighter future for music — something the Recording Academy has been championing since its inception, and made an even greater commitment to when it established its D.C. offices in 1998,” said Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow.
Little Big Town’s Phillip Sweet said their band is honored. “We’re honored to stand alongside the Academy and Reps. Chu and Collins in speaking out and protecting an industry that has done so much for us,” he said.
“Music is healing and powerful, and music education gives our children an outlet for expression that is absolutely necessary for their overall growth and well-being,” said LBT’s Karen Fairchild. “We will continue to do our part to protect music education, songwriters, recordings, and the artists who bring them to life.”
Previous honorees include Keith Urban, Alicia Keys and John Mayer. Congratulations, Little Big Town!
