Little Big Town Bring a ‘Pontoon’ to 2012 CMT Music Awards

Beach balls, bikinis and beer bottles … it must be Little Big Town and their new single, ‘Pontoon.’ The country music quartet brought a full-size boat to the stage of the 2012 CMT Music Awards, where they sang their latest single from the balcony of a pontoon boat as about two dozen hot bodies danced and partied below.

Karen Fairchild sings lead on the song, their first from an upcoming album. Kimberly Schlapman looked adorable in a yellow and black sundress, while Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet sang along and played guitar and mandolin in dark sunglasses. Without going overboard, the group created a believable beach scene — the perfect setting for the laid-back new single.

Kellie Pickler introduced the group, promising that they’d be “Motor boatin’.” Thankfully, they weren’t. There isn’t room for that kind of insanity in the bowl of the Bridgestone Arena on Broadway in Nashville. The crowd immediately in front of the stage held beer coozies with the letters “L-B-T” in big block letters.

While Little Big Town played, artists like Jake Owen and Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley were seen thoroughly enjoying the performance. Many held coozies and cups full of their own concoction.
