“Girl Crush” From Little Big Town: It’s Not What You Think It Is

Little Big Town Girl CrushCurrently, radio stations across the country are being forced to pull from rotation Little Big Town’s newest single “Girl Crush”.  This is all due to some angry listeners misinterpreting the song and thinking it’s about lesbians.  If it actually was, would that really be so bad? It’s 2015, after all.   It’s not, though, so everybody just relax.  What the song is really about is a jealous ex-girlfriend wanting to put herself in the place of the current girlfriend.  She wants to live vicariously through eyes of the current and desperately wants what the current girlfriend has back.  Think we’ve all been there wondering what your ex sees in this other person that they no longer see in you as your heart breaks wanting what you once had back.

Song Lyrics: Little Big Town | “Day Drinking”

Little Big Town | “Day Drinking”

 

Watch the live performance video of “Day Drinking” from the CMT Music Awards HERE!

Everybody’s always waitin’ on Friday
Watching that clock and sip on joe
Whatchya say we find a little warm sunshine
And open up an umbrella on the patio

I don’t need a reason to go to happy hour
And hang around for a fireworks show
Get a head start a little sip of somethin’
1, 2, 3 here we go

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Why don’t we do a little day drinking

Blame it on the work day
Blame it on the heatwave
Blame it on the tick-tock moving too slow
Blame it on any old thing you want to
Baby get set baby here we go

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Why don’t we do a little day drinking

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Why don’t we do a little day drinking
Why don’t we do a little day drinking

Little Big Town “Perseverance” Panel Added To CRS 2014 Agenda

CRS2013 CMA Vocal Group of the Year, Little Big Town, will present a panel about perseverance in the country music industry at CRS 2014. Bob Kingsley will conduct an interview with the band throughout the session, which will take place Feb.19 in the Nashville Convention Center.

Little Big Town embodies the definition of perseverance, with their “steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.” During the panel, they will share stories about their perseverance as a band, which eventually landed them a #1 album, 2 #1 singles, a Grammy Award and ACM/CMA Vocal Group of the Year.

Throughout their career, the group, made up of members Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet, have stuck together through several challenging label changes. They received their first record deal with Mercury Nashville Records before moving to Sony’s Monument Records, where they released their debut album. From there, the band went from the small independent label, Equity Music Group, to their current label, Capitol Records, which was later taken over by major label, Universal Music Group.

“It’s an honor to be asked to be a part of CRS this year and especially the chance to share some of our story as a band through the last 14 years,” said Little Big Town. “It’s definitely been about perseverance for us.”

“Throughout every challenge the band has had, they’ve continued to establish and develop so many relationships and give back in so many ways,” said Bob Kingsley.  “Their ability to adapt to situations and stay ahead is a hard feat, and one that we can all learn from.”

CRS 2014 will include more than 20 educational panels and industry-leading speakers, including “Cracking the Code: Using Data to Discover the Hits,” “Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, Beats: It’s Their Country, Too,” “Marketing On A Shoestring Budget,” “Would You Like Sales Prospects to Call You?” and more.

Other CRS 2014 agenda highlights include two major research presentations (sponsored by CMA and CRS), three label luncheons and performances, Acoustic Alley (sponsored by Bob Kingsley), the CRS keynote address, the popular New Faces of Country Music Dinner and Performance (co-sponsored by MDA and ACM) and much more.

CRS 2014 will be held Feb. 19-21, 2014 in downtown Nashville, Tenn. at the Nashville Convention Center.  The $499 regular registration rate is still available and can be purchased at www.CountryRadioSeminar.com.
