WASHINGTON, DC –  Country music radio stations are pulling Little Big Town’s latest single from the air, after getting complaints that the song promotes “a gay agenda”.

According to The Washington Post, the lyrics in the song “Girl Crush” have many people believing the song is about a lesbian love affair. In reality, the song describes the jealousy felt by one woman toward her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend.

Here are the lyrics that ignited the controversy “I want to taste her lips/ Yeah, ’cause they taste like you/ I want to 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.” 

The song is featured on the band’s latest album, “Pain Killer”.  According to Billboard, the song is currently number 17 on its country music charts. Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert have both recorded covers of the song.
