In 1998, the popular country music group Little Big Town (comprised of Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, Phillip Sweet, and Karen Fairchild) formed and released its first album Little Big Town in 2002. Shortly after putting out their debut record, members Phillip Sweet and Karen Fairchild both divorced their spouses.
Eventually, true love took root and blossomed between LBT’s Jimi Westbrook and the newly single Karen Fairchild.
The talented couple married on May 31, 2006, during an quiet ceremony in Nashville— so quiet that the public didn’t know they got hitched until two months after the wedding. Nearly four years later, Jimi and Karen welcomed their son Elijah Dylan Westbrook into the world on on March 5, 2010.

The band has been through a lot as a unit— divorces, marriages, children, vocal issues, etc. At one point LBT was on the brink of dissolving after Kimberly tragically lost her first husband Steven Roads to a heart attack in 2005.
We’re thrilled that this quartet has remained so true to each other and has even spawned off one really beautiful marriage. We wish Jimi Westbrook and Karen Fairchild the best as they enjoy their 10th year of wedded bliss!
