I heard this song recently while driving, and it made me remember the first time I heard it performed. Little Big Town sang their ballad “Girl Crush” at the 2015 CMA Awards, and I literally had goosebumps for the duration of their performance. The stripped down music and Karen Fairchild’s voice had me like WHOA.
(And her outfit! Holy sparkly jumpsuit Batman. I don’t know many who can pull it off that effortlessly and look totally cool and not like a freak who’s trying too hard, but rock on girlfriend :D)
It’s a different take on a feeling that almost all women have at some point in their lives – being jealous of another girl who’s with a guy she’s crushing on. But it’s delivered in a way that hadn’t been done before, and I dig it.
