Good news for anyone following Little Big Town's controversy regarding their hit song 'Girl Crush'-- the backlash over the single seems to be over, as more and more big name stars have been coming forward to show support of the multi-award winning group.

Just this past week, Billboard contacted over a dozen radio stations across the nation asking if they had pulled 'Girl Crush' from the airwaves for its supposed promotion of a 'gay agenda'. The response? An overwhelming 'No' from every station!

"I’m a narrow-minded, conservative, eighth-generation Texan," announced radio programmer 'Big Frank'. "I think the song is fine."

Country stars all over have been showing their support by donning 'Girl Crush' hats and posting selfies on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, such as this one of superstar Reba McEntire.

Billboard has also noted that the song went up on their charts since the controversy.

"[It's] just shocking to me, the close-mindedness," says Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild. "When that’s just not what the song was about."
She adds, "But what if it were? It’s just a greater issue of listening to a song for what it is."

 

And luckily, the majority of people seem to agree that it's outrageous the level of ignorance being displayed because of a misinterpretation of the country song's lyrics.

Little Big Town continues to post pictures of fans, both famous and not, in 'Girl Crush' gear on their instagram (@littlebigtown).

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert recently posted this adorable kissing photo in their 'Girl Crush' hats.

In case you haven't heard the song, here's the video below. 'Girl Crush' is also available for download on iTunes.

'Girl Crush' (by Little Big Town)

I gotta girl crush, hate to admit it but
I gotta heart rush, ain’t slowin’ down
I got it real bad, want everything she has
That smile and the midnight laugh she’s givin’ you now

I wanna taste her lips, yeah, ‘cause they taste like you
I wanna drown myself in a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair, I want her magic touch
Yeah, ‘cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much
I gotta girl crush, I gotta girl crush

I don’t get no sleep, I don’t get no peace
Thinkin’ about her under your bed sheets
The way that she’s whisperin’, the way that she’s pullin’ you in
Lord knows I’ve tried, I can’t get her off my mind

I wanna taste her lips, yeah, ‘cause they taste like you
I wanna drown myself in a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair, I want her magic touch
Yeah, ‘cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much
I gotta girl crush, I gotta girl crush

I gotta girl crush, hate to admit it but
I gotta heart rush, it ain’t slowin’ down
