Little Big Town surprised fans by covering Rocket Man during their performance at Sunday night’s Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

The four-piece group also donned flamboyant, Elton-inspired outfits, featuring fur and sparkles.

The latter has admitted to the Taste of Country Nights Web site that he was a bit apprehensive when they decided to put their own spin on Rocket Man.

“Their take on it could have been very glee club-ish,” the lyricist says. “Frank Liddell’s production just turned it on its ear. It’s really spectacular.”
