Radio Stations Pull Little Big Town Song For 'Pushing Gay Agenda'

Little Big Town makes history on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, as "Girl Crush" ranks at No. 1 for an 11th week, marking the most frames that a song by a group (of at least three members) has reigned in the chart's 56-year history.



The track, with lead vocals from the quartet's Karen Staley, tells the story of a woman's jealousy of another woman and has been creating chatter, and even controversy for months, surely helping the single's success. Its 11-week reign passes trio The Browns' "Three Bells," which dominated Hot Country Songs for 10 weeks in 1959.

"Crush" also leads Country Digital Songs for an 11th week, with 59,000 downloads sold, upping its to-date total to 1.4 million.
