Who is Kimberly Schlapman?

Kimberly Schlapman was born in 15 October 1969, in Cornelia, Georgia USA, and is a singer, best known for being a member of the country music band called Little Big Town. She is one of the founding members of the group, and has stayed with them since its inception.

The Riches of Kimberly Schlapman

Net worth is ~$2.5 million. She’s also known to be a cooking enthusiast, and regularly features food along with her music.

Career Beginnings

She enrolled in Alabama’s Samford University where she joined the school’s acapella group. During this time, she met and became friends with Karen Fairchild, and after graduating, the two moved to Nashville, Tennessee with hopes of building careers as solo artists, and they auditioned for several record labels while she worked mainly as a waitress.

Eventually, they decided to form the duo called Little Big Town in the 1990s, singing together as opposed to working alone. Eventually, they were joined by Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet, and the group landed a record deal with Mercury Nashville Records, however, the contract was unsuccessful as they never released a single or an album with the label. They were dropped from the roster, and in 2001 they then worked as backing vocals for the Collin Raye album entitled “Can’t Back Down”. They also did songwriting work, and in 2002 secured a second contract, this time with record company Monument Records.

The Rise of Little Big Town

During the same year, the band released their first, self-titled album, which produced charting hits such as “Everything Changes” and “Don’t Waste My Time”. Shortly after the release of their album, the group encountered problems with their respective personal lives, and after the Nashville branch of Monument dissolved, the group exited and took up day jobs to make more money. Despite that, the group still continued to perform and tour, and in 2005 they signed with Equity Music Group, and released the single “Boondocks”, leading to their second album entitled “The Road to Here”, which produced their first top five hit on Hot Country Songs, and also several top 20 hits. It was certified Platinum in the US, and led to a follow up project called “A Place to Land”, later re-released with four new songs. The group then opened for Carrie Underwood during her Carnival Ride Tour, but in 2009 they had their first headlining tour in Jacksonville, Florida, which continued for a month. During the same year, the group was nominated for the fourth year in a row at the CMA Awards as Vocal Group of the Year.

Later Career

In 2010, Little Big Town released a new single – “Little White Church” – as a lead-off to their fourth studio album entitled “The Reason Why”. The single charted highly, and after the release of the album, they worked as an opening act for Sugarland before going on their own tour called The Reason Why Tour.

Two years later, they released their fifth album entitled “Tornado”, and the lead single became their first number one hit in Hot Country Songs, and their first single to receive Platinum certification. Their song “Pontoon” also won a Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and the album was later certified gold. A few other songs from their album charted, and they went on tour with other musical groups.

In 2014, they recorded their sixth studio album entitled “Pain Killer”, which led to the group being invited to the Grand Ole Opry by Reba McEntire. The group was nominated for five CMA Awards that year, and won Song of the Year with “Girl Crush”. A few of their latest projects include their seventh studio album entitled “Wanderlust” and they also became the first act in history to have a residency at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Personal Life

Kimberly has been married to Stephen Schlapman since 2006 and they have a daughter together; they have also adopted another daughter. Prior to Stephen, she was married to Steven Roads who passed away from a heart attack in 2005, after which she met Stephen who helped her recover from the loss. One of her daughters is named after famous singer Dolly Parton, who is one of Kimberly’s musical inspirations. The family reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
