Little Big Town's trio of CMA nominations were announced yesterday while the band was homebound on a flight from Seattle.
Thanks to in-flight WiFi, they heard the news well before landing.
Band member Karen Fairchild says, "A couple of us started getting e-mails. But we were in different sections of the plane, so we were trying to discreetly pass the congratulations to each other. We didn't want to have to get on the intercom and announce it, although we were so excited, we really did kind of wanted to."
