Backup standby database using LVM snapshot

Objective: Backup standby database (synchronous streaming replication) using LVM snapshot.

When running pg_start_backup:

postgres=# SELECT pg_start_backup('label'); ERROR:  recovery is in progress HINT:  WAL control functions cannot be executed during recovery. 

Is it possible to copy backup_label and tablespace_map from the primary database's cluster directory into the standby database's cluster directory in order to perform the LVN snapshot backup of the standby cluster directory?
