Little Big Town’s Phillip Sweet will not be performing on the ACM Awards on Sunday (4/18) because he is positive for COVID-19.

The rest of the band will be performing on the show without Phillip. Kimberly Schlapman told Taste of Country that he is recovering but not well enough to be in public.

Schlapman said Sweet is in the band’s thoughts, and she even brought him chicken and dumplings as to help him to feel better (left on his doorstep, of course).

Little Big Town are nominated in the Vocal Group of the Year category at Sunday’s ACM Awards, which airs live on CBS at 8PM ET.
