Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" won Song of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards. The song is from their 2014 Pain Killer album.

The song's writers, Liz Rose, Lori McKenna and Hillary Lindsey, took the stage to accept the honor.

"You guys were behind this song, literally, from hour one," Rose said to LBT.

The trio of tunesmiths also expressed gratitude to the producer, Jay Joyce, for supporting the song and "for being the incredible mad music scientist that he is."

Little Big Town are the only group who had a single nominated for Song of the Year this year. The song broke a long-standing chart record, spending 11 weeks in the top spot on Billboard, beating out the longest run for a group having a No. 1 single by a week.

“I knew as soon as I heard the hook of the first chorus that we had to have this song,” Fairchild recalls. “I’d never heard a jealousy song written like this. It’s definitely one of the best songs I’ve ever heard, and to get to sing it every night is a gift.

“It could be a bit of a game changer on country radio right now,” she adds. “There are not many women on the radio and not many ballads with that kind of lyrical content. I’m excited. Already, radio’s support has been huge out of the gate.”.
