Congratulations to Little Big Town and Trisha Yearwood, who were big winners at the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards!

Little Big Town won their Daytime Emmy award for Outstanding Original Song (“Good Afternoon”), the theme song for ABC’s Good Afternoon America. “Good Afternoon” was co-written by Little Big Town, Brett Warren and Brad Warren and was produced by Jay Joyce and recorded in Nashville, TN last summer.

“We are freaking out right now,” exclaimed Karen Fairchild. “Winning a Daytime Emmy award is something that we could have never imagined and we are incredibly excited and honored!  Thanks so much to Monica Escobedo and Alan Ives at ABC and also our co-writers Brad and Brett Warren.”

You can see LBT live this Wednesday on ABC’s The View (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET).  They’ll perform their current single “Your Side Of The Bed” and appear in the show’s “Ladies Who Lunch” segment, featuring food created by Kimberly Schlapman and seen on her GAC cooking show Kimberly’s Simply Southern.

“Your Side Of The Bed,” written by Little Big Town and Lori McKenna, follows up their previous No. 1s “Pontoon” and “Tornado.”

Trisha was nominated for Outstanding Culinary Program, up against Best Thing I Ever Made; Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction; Giada At Home; and Recipe Rehab. Trisha’s Southern Kitchen and Best Thing I Ever Made tied for the win.

The third season of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen began on the Food Network May 25. Most recently, Trisha made a surprise appearance at the 2013 CMA Music Festival, singing with Kelly Clarkson onstage. See the photos >>
