Little Big Town's Kimberly Roads gives birth

Sunday, July 29, 2007 – Kimberly Roads of Little Big Town and husband Stephen Schlapman are the parents of Daisy Pearl, born Friday in Phoenix. Roads gave birth a few weeks early while on tour with the band.

"I guess we really do do everything together," said an exhausted but overjoyed Roads in a press release. "Sweet little Daisy Pearl wasn't due for another three weeks, but it seems life on the road is just too exciting to be missed." The baby weighed in at 6 pounds 10 ounces.

Bandmates Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet (who, with wife Rebecca, is also expecting his first child later this year) accompanied Roads and Schlapman to the hospital, before departing for their next show in Las Vegas, where the show did go on.

"It was the first time we have ever done a show without all four of us," said Westbrook. "This is a special situation, and we all decided that's what needed to be done. We only have a few shows left on the tour, and we just didn't want to disappoint the fans. We can't even tell you how much we are missing Kimberly and, of course, little Daisy."

Once the tour is done, following the group's Aug. 5th performance in Boise, Ida., Little Big Town will return to the studio to wrap up work on their second CD for Equity, scheduled for release this fall.

The album opens with "Next to You," which builds from a gentle meditation, into a full-on anthemic ode to the comfort and strength of fidelity. "Questions" interestingly finds an ex asking questions via song lyrics, which she can never ...
CD review - The Breaker Anyone who missed Little Big Town's remarkable 2012 Unplugged performance on CMT should seek it out online. When they sing their monster hit "Pontoon," four hypnotic voices combine to harmonic perfection with no studio tricks - pick from any of the microphones, and it works as the song's lead vocal. But now that the group has ascended to the upper rung of stardom, different challenges arise. How do you compete with yourself fresh from a Grammy for Best Country Song ...
CD review - Pain Killer For some, listening to Little Big Town will be an act of searching for something at least half as catchy as "Pontoon," yet without success. Whenever a group creates such a fantastically memorable single, the prospect of following it up successfully can be a bit of a handicap. With that said, though, "Pain Killer" is a pretty good pop-country album, as pop-country albums go. Although Little Big Town has never been known to be rockers, the rollicking "Save Your Sin" ...
