A Little Big Town Baby

Kimberly Roads of Little Big Town welcomed a big bundle of joy when she gave birth to daughter Daisy Pearl July 27 in Phoenix.

The baby was born on the road and weighed in at 6 pounds, 10 ounces. Kimberly’s bandmates Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet accompanied Kimberly and husband Stephen Schlapman to the hospital before departing for their show in Las Vegas, where they were opening for Martina McBride. “Sweet little Daisy Pearl wasn’t due for another three weeks,” Kimberly said later, “but it seems life on the road is just too exciting to be missed.” The show in Las Vegas definitely went on, although without Kimberly. After the band’s first number, a video of Kimberly in the hospital was shown. Later in the set, the band announced that Kimberly had given birth. The announcement brought the house to tears, reports a fan who attended the Las Vegas show. “It was almost like sharing a part of their lives with them,” the fan, Harry Miller, told syndicated radio personality Nashville Kat. “Little Big Town showed an incredible level of professionalism in doing their entire show minus one member.”
