Country radio stations have started to pull Little Big Town's new hit single 'Girl Crush' because of the controversy surrounding the lyrics.

The Washington Post reports the song about a woman that is envious of her ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend has created a problem with several country music fans.

Lyrics like "I want to taste her lips, yeah cause they taste like you / I want to drown myself in a bottle of her perfume", have people calling and e-mailing into radio stations saying the song is "promoting the gay agenda".

The backlash from the song has been disappointing for the Grammy-winning band. The group recently said in an interview "Just that fact that we're still discussing that, number one, there are so many problems with that whole issue."
