After finally winning their first-ever Country Music Association Award in November, vocal group Little Big Town notched another first this evening at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. During the pre-telecast portion of the awards, the foursome of Jimi Westbrook, Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet won the Grammy for Best Country/Duo Group Performance for the ever-buoyant "Pontoon."  

Elsewhere, Carrie Underwood's hit "Blown Away" picked up two trophies, including Best Country Song, which went to the song's writers, Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins.

Zac Brown Band's Uncaged was named Best Country Album, besting such nominees as Miranda Lambert's Four the Record, Jamey Johnson's Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran and self-titled albums by Hunter Hayes and The Time Jumpers.

Here are the country categories winners:

Best Country Solo Performance - Carrie Underwood, "Blown Away"

Best Country Duo/Group Performance - Little Big Town, "Pontoon"

Best Country Song - "Blown Away" (Josh Kear & Chris Tompkins, writers)
