Taylor Swift is cheering Little Big Town from afar!
Presented by Swift’s friend Karlie Kloss, Little Big Town accepted the honor on behalf of Swift, who couldn’t attend the event due to scheduling conflicts.
“We didn’t write this,” Karen Fairchild said onstage. “We’re really grateful that [bandmate] Philip [Sweet] checked his email one night and that song was in his email. We want to say thanks to Taylor Swift. She couldn’t be here tonight with us.”
She continued, “Taylor, wherever you are, thank you for writing this beautiful song, and loving songs and loving Nashville. To the fans, to country radio, thanks for being so good to us.”
“In NYC for SNL rehearsals. LOVE YOU @littlebigtown and CMAs,” Swift Tweeted on Wednesday night.
