Straight Ciswomen and Country Music

"God Made Girls" and "A Girl in a Country Song" are often played next to each other on country radio, though one clearly perpetuates gender stereotypes, while the other calls the portrayal of women in modern country songs into question, while still perpetuating gender stereotypes in the song’s video quite hypocritically. Also the song "Girl Crush" has been banned some places for its lesbian undertones, though it is not a lesbian song. So, what really is going on with girls in country music, and will there ever be a place for the LGBT community in pop country?
