Country Stars Have Little Big Town’s Back in “Girl Crush” Controversy

Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Kacey Musgraves and Others Have a #SongCrush

I think Miranda Lambert spoke for all of the country stars when she said, “I got a song crush.”

She just wrote that on Twitter. And that song she’s crushing on is the one every other country star can’t stop talking about — Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush.”

The stars are flooding social media with photos, hashtags and love to sing the song’s praises.

Lambert’s tweet included a plea to radio stations — #PlayGirlCrush — and a picture of her kissing her husband Blake Shelton. They are both wearing their red-and-white “Girl Crush” trucker hats. Shelton showed his support by retweeting that.

Reba McEntire did it, too, by tipping her hat to the band.

And Kacey Musgraves got her whole band in on the action with their matching “Girl Crush” hats.

Ashley Monroe wore one.

So did the Cadillac Three.

And Kenny Chesney’s tourmates Old Dominion did it, as well.

Then newcomer Kelsea Ballerini didn’t just sing the song’s praises. She posted a video of her version of “Girl Crush.” She’s sitting on the floor in a bedroom somewhere, alone with a guitar and a laptop. And it is on point.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
