Tune in to watch one of the must-see and most talked about performances of the night…Grammy nominated Cam, and multi-platinum recording artist Alicia Keys performing “Girl Crush” as a mark of respect to the nights’ Crystal Milestone Award winners Little Big Town.
“Girl Crush”, written by Lori McKenna, Hillary Lindsey and Liz Rose and recorded by Grammy award winning country artists Little Big Town caused quite the controversy when the song was released late 2014 for its perceived provocative lyrics. The track went on to receive numerous awards for the band and its songwriters, including two CMA’s, two Grammys and a CMT Award and has sold more than 3 million copies to date.
“That was one of the most magical moments I’ve had on stage, and of course it was at the Ryman!” said Cam. “Alicia is so insanely talented and such a gracious person to work with. We both felt so honored to be celebrating Little Big Town together.” With Cam on guitar and Alicia on piano, the duo delivered a mind-blowing performance that received one of the biggest and loudest standing ovations of the evening.
The two girls also have a lot more in common than one would think, including: both have worked with Jeff Bhasker, last years recipient of the ‘Producer of the Year’ Grammy award. Bhasker is Cam’s executive producer and co-writer of her break-out hit “Burning House” and most noticeably, Alicia’s co-producer and co-writer of “Girl on Fire”, amongst others; both girls are also Sony label mates.
