She hates “truck songs” in her country music, wrinkles her nose at Taylor Swift mentions and pens odes to smoking weed and gay best friends. Meet Kacey Musgraves from Golden, Texas, as she takes on Europe for the first time...
Her brown eyes slightly bleary, less than an hour off the plane, this is Kacey Musgraves walking the walk. Back home, there’s been plenty of excitable talk in the big business country community about the girl from Golden, Texas. A 25-year-old songwriter who sticks to faithful country tropes musically – twangs, slides and all – she updates the age-old melodies with tales of youth in modern times. This tendency to sing frankly about one-night stands and tackle religious bigotry has seen her simultaneously hailed as the ‘Future Of Country’ in certain US publications and attacked for singing “anti-country” songs in traditional quarters.
Kacey Musgraves’ Same Trailer Different Park album is out now
