Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” has never sounded sweeter YouTube

We all know that Little Big Town’s harmony is tight, but they share a special bond that is even tighter.

On March 2, Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook visited “The Talk” on CBS. When show co-host Aisha Tyler asked them how they felt after “crushing” their 2016 Grammy Awards “Girl Crush” performance, Karen opened up.

“It was overwhelming. It’s like, you know… jumping out of a plane or something, just standing up there you can see all of the people that you love in the music business.”

The group also confessed that they didn’t actually write the song, which gave them the ultimate career-high. Instead, they credit a group of ladies called the “Love Junkies.”

“It just took my breath,” gasped Kimberly reminiscing about the time she first heard “Girl Crush.”

Of course, after talking so much about the song, it made the most appropriate sense for the group to sing an on-the-spot version of it a cappella, which they did.

Then they shared some comical details about a prayer ritual that they do before each and every performance.

“We’ll all put our hands together say a little prayer and then say ‘one, two, three, break,'” said Phillip. “When we break we blurt out our favorite Ron Burgundy “Anchorman” line!”
