When Little Big Town released “Girl Crush” back in 2014, we were floored by the song’s haunting lyrics and distinctive harmonies.
And as the song went on to the top of the charts and won award after award and other artists tried their hands at covering the provocative song, we grew to appreciate the song more and more.
But never did we imagine hearing it quite like this.
During the recent ACM Honors special on Sept. 9, rising country star Cam and vocal powerhouse Alicia Keys gave the song a whirl and absolutely killed it. As Little Big Town sat in the crowd with a look of awe on their faces, the two belted out an incredible cover of the song that will be remembered for years to come.
Just minutes before the show, Cam told Rare Country what it was like to perform the song alongside Alicia.
“As artists, you’re so in your own world, in your own head a lot of the time, when you get to work with new people and see how they do things and just be around them,” Cam said. “Alicia is just brilliant. She has such a natural talent and she carries herself so well, super strong woman, super boss. Being around someone like that is really inspiring.”
