Little Big Town’s soulful “Girl Crush” continues the quartet’s exploration of new musical sounds and lyrical themes.
Released nine weeks ago, the track is gaining momentum at radio stations and has climbed to No. 35 on Billboard’s country airplay chart. The song was written by three of country music’s most successful songwriters — Lori McKenna, Hillary Lindsey and Liz Rose — and is the second single from Little Big Town’s latest album, Pain Killer.
