‘Pontoon’ floats Little Big Town to the top

Kimberly Schlapman’s husband is a carpenter, and he’s been building some new shelves in their house, in part, to display some of the trophies that Schlapman has won in the past year as one quarter of the country vocal quartet Little Big Town. The group scored the Country Music Association award for vocal group of the year and single of the year last November for their smash hit “Pontoon,” and in December the American Country Award for music video of the year.

“The other day, he was working on the shelves and he said, ‘Baby, I’m thinking a Grammy would look good right here,’” says Schlapman in her peach-sweet Georgia drawl, on the phone from LA where the band was planning on attending the ceremony this past Sunday. “I said, ‘If that were to happen I might put it on the front door, not a shelf on the wall.’ ”
