It’s a Pearl, I mean Girl for LBT!

web_kimberly_roads.jpg Kimberly Roads of Little Big Town and husband Stephen Schlapman are proud parents of their first baby! Little Daisy Pearl came a few weeks early popping out of momma July 27th, while the band was on the road. Daisy chose to come into the world while in Phoenix, AZ, weighing 6 lbs 10 oz.

“I guess we really DO do everything together,” said an exhausted but overjoyed Roads, “Sweet little Daisy Pearl wasn’t due for another three weeks, but it seems life on the road is just too exciting to be missed.”

Bandmates Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet (who, with wife Rebecca, is also expecting his first child later this year) accompanied Roads and husband Schlapman to the hospital, before departing for their next show in Vegas, where, the show did go on.

“It was the first time we have ever done a show without all four of us,” said Little Big Town’s Jimi Westbrook. “This is a special situation and we all decided that’s what needed to be done. We only have a few shows left on the tour and we just didn’t want to disappoint the fans. We can’t even tell you how much we are missing Kimberly and, of course, little Daisy.”
