We were already in love before the start of Wednesday’s show, but, well, our girl/guy crush is going harder than ever.
Their Red Carpet Looks
Kimberly Schlapman’s hair game is always strong, but man, the boys in the band clean up well. And, as always, Karen Fairchild’s whole … thing is just fire emoji, 100 emoji.
Their Shout-Out to the ‘Gatekeepers’
The CMA-winning “Girl Crush” had a somewhat troubled path to its current success, which Fairchild alluded to in her acceptance speech: “Country radio, thanks for having the guts to play it, and to all the gatekeepers for not getting in the way.” Earlier on, she said the song was about “being brave and bold,” which is a sentiment we can get behind.
Phillip Sweet poked a little fun at Schlapman and Fairchild with this picture, which shows the male half of the group’s lone pairs of shoes dwarfed by the female half’s small army of footwear.
Schlapman’s Jacket in This Picture
What? It’s a cool-looking jacket. Where did you get the jacket, Kimberly?
