“Girl Crush” has now been at the top of Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart for 11 weeks. The last song to hold the top spot for this long was “Three Bells” by the Browns, in 1959.
The single is now the most downloaded in country music for 2015 with sales totaling approaching 1.4 million.
“Girl Crush” was written by Lori McKenna, Liz Rose and Hillary Lindsey, collectively known as the Love Junkies.
