We all learned a little bit about “motorboatin’” at last night’s CMA Awards! That term was perhaps the word most uttered other than “country,” and it’s all thanks to Little Big Town and their award-winning hit “Pontoon.” The quartet—Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet—performed their smash during the 46th annual awards in coordinating leather dresses (for the ladies) and black blazers (for the boys) that embodied the sassiness of their lyrics (makin' waves and catchin' rays up on the roof,  jumpin' out the back, don't act like you don't want to, party in slow motion, out here in the open, mmmmmmm... motorboatin’.) No wonder they walked away with two of the evening’s biggest honors: Vocal Group of the Year and Single of the Year! “Look at these!” they cheered when they got their awards. “It’s been an incredible journey.” Watch their performance above, but be warned—the song will be stuck in your head all day.
