Say it ain't so!
Little Big Town has to press pause when it comes to performing!
That's because their member Jimi Westbrook has to have surgery on his vocal cords to have a polyp removed. Yikes!
He and fellow band members Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, and Phillip Sweet took to Facebook on Wednesday to make the sad announcement that they will have to either reschedule or cancel all their tour dates between now and July 30.
The group has not yet announced any rescheduled dates, but we're glad Jimi is putting his health first.
Vocal polyps are pretty serious for musicians, so we're relieved that he'll be taking the proper precautions for his recovery once he has his operation.

For example, Phillip Sweet (far left) matched his suede shoes to his pinstriped suit!!!
Kimberly Schlapman gave us Carrie Bradshaw vibes with her blonde curls, and though we liked her subtly printed halter dress those platform pumps were too clunky for the feminine gown.
On the right, Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook went for an edgier style, with Karen in a gold embroidered leather dress and leopard-print clutch, while Jimi was suave in his t-shirt and BEADED lapel blazer!
See? We meant it when we said they took style seriously tonight!
Go AHEAD, Little Big Town!

Girl Power! Watch Brittany Snow & Erin Andrews Open The CMT Awards With A Funny Tribute To Carrie Underwood!
Aaaaaand we're off! The CMT Music Awards are under way!
Hosted this year by Erin Andrews and Brittany Snow, the two lovely ladies opened the show joking about their not-so-unique place in award show history, and we've got the video (above)!
Brittany opened the show proud, saying:
"It's hosted this year by two ladies, and I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time in history there are no male hosts!"
Erin then turned her attention to Carrie Underwood, because what would the CMTs be without her golden voice and roster of hit songs?!
Erin brought out the Belmont Bellas to croon a love song to Carrie — and all female performers in country music — that was inspired by Little Big Town's I Got A Girl Crush.
Brittany's attempt to make it all about her was HIGHlarious, and started the awards off on the right foot!
Some country made it to the Billboard Music Awards!
When you add the legendary Faith to anything, it automatically becomes crazy amazing!
We already liked this song, but you have to check out how Faith upped our love of it.
Watch the performance (above)!
Stand up to the haters, Little Big Town!
As we reported, the Alabama-based band received a flood of controversy when many radio stations refused to play their hit song Girl Crush thinking it was about a lesbian relationship.
While the song is truly about a woman who is jealous of her ex's new girlfriend, conservative outlets still refused to embrace the song.
At the 2015 ACM Awards, LBT could have easily avoided ruffling feathers and played another number. However, the country ensemble refused to bow down to detractors, and ended up performing their polarizing ditty!
To watch their beautiful performance, ch-ch-check it out (above)!

The country group made a very stylish appearance on the red carpet at the Academy of Country Music Awards!
Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman wore some pretty bright — and complimentary — colors to the show and we LOVE it!
The men of the group look snazzy as well, but we can't get over Karen and Kimberly's dresses!
Karen chose a beautiful lacy, long red sleeved dress with a matching red satin clutch and a few rings while Kimberly wore a strapless fuchsia colored Reem Acra gown with minimal accessories and a clutch!
Love, love, LOVE!!
