This may be the only country I post for #musicthursdays. Kacey Musgraves popped up in some article I read a couple years ago and I decided give her a listen—and I was pleasantly surprised. I guess she’s kind of pop-country (maybe), but there’s enough musicianship and authenticity here for me to ignore that. I also enjoy her witty, sort of “classic country” lyrics that flow together in surprising ways. The subject matter of Musgrave’s songs are modern enough to give her a little edge and many of her songs are catchy as hell. In my quest to give my own daughters a variety of female musicians/vocals, Kacey Musgraves has not disappointed as one of the only country acts you’ll hear in our house.
