Little Big Town Bring ‘Girl Crush’ to 2016 Grammy Awards
Little Big Town have performed their massive hit “Girl Crush” at many an awards show as of late, so it’s no surprise that they sang the tune at the 2016 Grammy Awards, but their rendition of it never gets old, remaining flawless and unique every single time.
Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet confidently took the stage, and their ethereal harmonies captivated the star-studded audience. Their performance began with a few a cappella lines — and then the orchestra of strings began playing. The country quartet stood in a circle, with Fairchild, who sings lead on the song, front and center. This version of “Girl Crush” was just slightly sparser than the recorded version, and ever so slightly slowed down.
“Girl Crush” garnered LBT Best Country Duo / Group Performance, Best Country Song and Song of the Year nods at the 2016 Grammy Awards; additionally, the country group was nominated for Best Country Album, for Pain Killer. Perhaps the fact that “Girl Crush” was written with Chris Stapleton‘s old guitar gave the song some extra good luck.
