The CMAs in Nashville had viewers seeing stars, but unlike in years past, there wasn't one specific standout.

All the regulars – Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban and hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley – were in town for country's biggest night, but some of the genre's heaviest hitters walked away uncharacteristically empty-handed.

Meanwhile, duo Florida Georgia Line, one of the newer acts over the last few years, walked away with two awards: single of the year for "Cruise" and vocal duo of the year.

For Little Big Town members Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, all you need is love to understand the meaning of their hit song, "Sober," which will be performed by the band on Wednesday's Country Music Awards.

For the past 13 years, Kimberly Schlapman has been on the road with her Grammy-winning country group Little Big Town. But before she was singing "Pontoon" at sold out shows, Schlapman was at home learning her mother's secret recipes.

"I always watched my mama," she explains. "She was always cooking for people – when anyone had something to celebrate or grieve, she was at their door with supper or some kind of homemade goodie."

Taking cues from mama's specialties of biscuits and homemade pies, Schlapman's style of southern comfort food is seen in her own cakes, casseroles and fried chicken. The singer is now passing down what she learned to her daughter, Daisy, and to her fans as host of GAC's Kimberly's Simply Southern.
