“It started on the bus because they’re on the tour with us all the time and they have little dance parties and perform,” said Fairchild, 49, who shares son Elijah Dylan, 9 next month, with her husband.

“My daughter [Penelopi Jane, 11] just performed, playing piano and singing at a talent show at her school, and she did really great,” chimed in Sweet, 44. “She loves it, and they all love it so much.”

The kids are also business-minded already. As Fairchild explained, “They make the crew pay tickets. We give them back their money but they bring the crew on the bus and they’re like, ‘Watch us perform!’ “

“They call themselves the Little Big Kids,” she added.

The four-time Grammy-winning country quartet is up for two awards at Sunday’s show: best country song and best country duo/group performance, for their hit “When Someone Stops Loving You.”

“Daisy prayed for a sibling for years,” Schlapman, 49, told PEOPLE of her older child in March 2017. “She begged us and God for years, and even asked Santa Claus this year for a sibling.”
