Last night, CMT held their annual Artists of the Year awards show. Every year, they honor country music artists who had momentous years. 

Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Sam Hunt were all honored. CMT also named Kenny Rogers its Artist of a Lifetime award and honored Chris Stapleton with the Artists of the Year Breakout Award. 

While honoring Little Big Town, who had a record-breaking year, pop-singers Adam Lambert and Leona Lewis sang their 2015 chart-topper, "Girl Crush". 

"Girl Crush" is a ballad about a girl obsessing over another girl who has taken her boyfriend from her, and has sold over 1.8 million copies. It is the band's first Top-20 hit and broke a 56-year record for longest-running number 1 on Hot County Songs by a group of three of more members. 

Adam Lambert, who rose to fame after placing second on the eighth season of American Idol, has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide. In 2011 he began collaborating with legendary rock band Queen as their lead vocalist and toured world-wide with them starting in 2014.

Leona Lewis also got her start on a singing competition show. She won the third series of The X Factor in the UK. She is the best-selling act to have emerged from The X Factor franchise, and is a three-time Grammy nominee.

Together, their voices were incredible and everyone in the audience agreed, including Little Big Town! Band members Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet can be seen in the audience, admiring Lambert and Lewis' vocal talent. They, along with everyone in the audience, gave the singers a deserving standing ovation.

Kimberly and Phillip accepted the Artists of the Year award without fellow band members Jimi Westbrook and Karen Fairchild. It was announced before the show yesterday that Jimi's sister, Joyce, had passed away from cancer. Kimberly and Phillip honored Joyce is the nicest way, by looking to Heaven and pointing the award to her. 

Well-deserved CMT Artists of the Year award, Little Big Town! Our thoughts and prayers are with Jimi Westbrook and his family after the loss of his sister, Joyce.

Posted by CMT on Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Our continued prayers go out to Jimi, Karen, and their family.

Lyrics Below

I got a girl crush, hate to admit it but
I got a 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 got a girl crush, I got a 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 got a girl crush

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