News flash : At the 2024 CMT Music Awards, Little Big Town remembered their experience working with Taylor Swift, including how she bonded with the band backstage by playing video games…



It turns out Taylor Swift loves the players and the games.

Little Big Town, who included the Taylor-penned “Better Man” on their 2017 The Breaker album, shared behind-the scenes details of working with the “Love Story” singer while diving into her country roots at the 2024 CMT Music Awards April 7.

“We’ve known Taylor for a long time,” Karen Fairchild explained to E! News’ Paul Costabile outside the Moody Center in Austin, Texas. “We’ve known Taylor since she was hanging out in the dressing room and was singing her first song on an award show.”

In fact, Karen recalled one of their best bonding moments backstage, noting, “She was asking us what lip glosses we were using and video gaming with the guys.” (See all the stars on the CMT Music Awards red carpet here and tune in to E! News April 8 for more exclusive interviews).

Fellow members Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbook nodded while remembering the good times.

That’s another community thing,” Karen continued. “And [it was] so kind of her to send us a beautiful song.”

Phillip explained how the band ended up with “Better Man” on their 2017 record, a song that went on to be included in the vault tracks for Red (Taylor’s Version) in 2021.

“I guess mine was the only email address she had,” he quipped. “I got this song in the inbox and I went and played it for them the very next day we were on the road. I was like, when I heard it, ‘This is huge,’ and the first time everyone heard it, we were all in.”

And while Taylor mostly left her country roots behind after the 2014 release of 1989, “Better Man” by Little Big Town won her a CMA Award in 2017, and she knew back in 2019 she would put it on her rerecorded record.
