Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman, Karen Fairchild and Philip Sweet of Little Big Town perform at the 2019 CMT Music Awards at Bridgestone Arena on June 5, 2019 in Nashville.

In already their second performance of the evening, country quartet Little Big Town brought a resonant performance of their recent single "The Daughters" to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night (June 5) for the 2019 CMT Music Awards

Debuted a few months earlier at the ACM Awards in a headline-capturing performance, the powerful song lost none of its emotional wallop in translating to the Nashville stage, as the group performed a less-is-more arrangement of the single under a large spinning globe.    

Earlier in the evening, Little Big Town performed alongside Thomas Rhett and Trombone Shorty on a rendition of Rhett's recent Center Point Road highlight "Don't Threaten Me With a Good Time" -- and, of course, they are also serving as the awards' hosts for the second year in a row. The quartet was also nominated for group video of the year, for their "Summer Fever" single, but lost to Zac Brown Band for "Someone I Used to Know."
