It was 2006. And Little Big Town was making its first appearance on the CMA Awards. They were singing “Bones,” a track from their The Road to Here album.

But the problem was, they were kind of fogged in.

In this video to celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards, the band’s Jimi Westbrook explains how the stage fog at their feet got way out of hand.

“In the middle, I remember there was an extreme amount of fog that engulfed the entire two front rows,” he recalled. And Kimberley Schlapman added, “We disappeared, too.”
