This!! More of THIS!!!!!!
We love us the women of country music, but most of the dudes with the exception of a few just don't do it for us.
are getting it right. Way right!!! Dan + Shay
Their latest single,
From The Ground Up, is beautiful. They're unafraid to be emotional in a country song!
A power ballad! A love song for all music lovers!!
If you liked the iconic
Lonestar song Amazed, then you will love this. It has a very similar vibe!
It also reminds us of
Little Big Town's big smash Girl Crush.
Check it out above!

dan shay, from the ground up, listen to this, little big town
performed tonight at the Little Big Town and we now have a band crush on them, because after hearing Grammys Girl Crush with an amazing string background, we are SOLD!
Sure, LBT is a foursome — including two men,
Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook — but we officially have a girl crush on the girl power behind singers Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Roads Schlapman, who KILLED IT taking the lead on the vocals and making the Grammys go country!
Ch-ch-check out this simple, dressed-down version of the hit song
In an award show format where it's so easy to get complicated and overdone, it is SO refreshing to see a group do it simple, and do it RIGHT!
And be sure to check out the ongoing winners list
girl crush, grammy awards, grammy awards 2016, grammys, grammys 2016, little big town
Little Big Town always brings their A-game!
If you're anything like us, you immediately noticed that vocalist
Kimberly Schlapman is totally twinning with at the 2016 Taylor Swift ! Grammys
They both definitely got the pink and orange (with short blonde hair) memo!
Karen Fairchild looked chic in all black — but there was definitely something weird going on with the various ties around her arms and neck.
Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet definitely held their own in classic black suits, one with white undershirt and the other with navy respectively.
