Earlier this week, Miranda Lambert surprised Nashville with a popup performance at Exit/In to kick off her Certified Platinum Tour. While the show was obviously incredible based on its epic setlist, there was certainly a standout moment. Lambert, joined by Gwen Sebastian, tackled Little Big Town’s current and much-buzzed about single, “Girl Crush.”
While Karen Fairchild of LBT takes the lead on the sultry spin on the tale of longing, here Lambert & Sebastian trade off on the verses bringing an almost dueling vibe to the song. In this style, the song almost has a “Does He Love You?” vibe…and obviously, we LOVE it.

And it’s safe to say that Little Big Town was QUITE impressed with Miranda Lambert’s take on the track, tweeting:

Everyone from Faith Hill to Sam Hunt to Kelly Clarkson has expressed their adoration for “Girl Crush,” and Clarkson even covered it at a concert of her own. Miranda Lambert’s Certified Platinum Tour kicked off last night in Evansville, Indiana, and Lambert couldn’t have been more thrilled, sharing a pic of opening act RaeLynn live on stage. The tour continues this weekend with stops in Lexington, Kentucky, Columbus, Ohio, North Chaleston, South Carolina and Knoxville, Tennessee.
