Plenty took to Twitter on Sunday evening to express their excitement over the band's performance of the Taylor Swift written single, stating that their life had been "made."

Lowkey Little Big Town is my jam. They did a favor for Taylor by singing this song. #Grammys— Stëvonie (@spankinstephiee) January 29, 2018
The quartet were performing on top of an eagle, something many thought was a little out of character for the country band though.

According to Grammy.com, the award-winning country act has scored an impressive 11 career nominations, with two wins so far. That total includes two brand new nominations for this year, where they stand in the running for Best Country Duo/Group Performance ("Better Man") and Best Country Album (Breaker).
During the E! red carpet on Sunday night, the country group discovered they won Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their hit "Better Man," an honor they truly appreciated.
"It means everything. I don't want to put too much on awards, but it really means a lot when your peers and the community recognizes your music," Phillip Sweet explained to E! News' Guiliana Rancic. "We're so happy and thankful for Taylor Swift for sending us the song 'Better Man.' It's amazing."
The "Are You Ready For It?" singer and the country band go way back.
"We've known her since she was a baby and she used to hang out in the dressing room and play video games with us," Karen Fairchild shared. "One day she e-mailed us and said, 'Hey, are you guys in the studio making a record? I have a song in my back pocket that I've loved for a long time and I hear your harmonies on it.' So she sent it to us and we were like 'Holy cow, this is a big song.'"
"We have children at home and we want to raise them to know that they can always speak out and take care of themselves and stick up for themselves," she explained.
Jimi Westbrook, bandmate Karen Fairchild's husband said it's all about "love and respect."
"We've been together for a really long time and that's what our relationship is based on," he said. "Men and women: equal and respect. That's the main thing. We have to respect and love each other. That's what being a human being is about."
