Kacey Musgraves reveals the classic influences of her hugely anticipated new album. | EW.com
I'm not liking the cover at all :/
I don't care for Biscuits. I do like Cup Of Tea
I really like Dimestore Cowgirl. There's something very catchy about the chorus. I was worried with the first few seconds because I thought it was going to sound like FYA. I remember hearing Cup of Tea and liking that too so slowly getting more excited for this album.
I'm actually listening to "Same Trailer, Different Park" for the first time and I really like it. Kacey is a really good story teller. I'm not a huge fan of her voice but it fits the songs. FYA was overrated to me, but everything else is good. I like how her characters in the songs are imperfect and unapologetic about it, their real people you can relate to. Wouldn't mind if someday she won FVOTY, not now for lack of radio hits, which is radio's fault, but it's still premature. But I can't wait for the new album.
They haven't posted the performance video, yet, but I thought that Kacey sounded good tonight on Fallon.
Music video for Biscuits is out:
^^ thats such cute video. I am starting to really like Kacey music. I am warming up to Biscuits. Here is another song called Family is Family. It's another good one. It's so true to real life.
Live performance of High Time. This is great song.
I actually love the tone of her voice. She is like Lee Ann Womack, very country. She is a clever writer but I hope she does not recycle the same type of songs.
Blowing Smoke, Trailer park song, Follow your arrow and now Biscuits are to similar in subject.
I love "Cup of Tea".
She did great job preforming Family Is Family on Seth Meyers. She looked beautiful. Kacey has cute style.
Saw it last night, too. She was really good!
I guess they are releasing that song for more buzz for her cd. I would not mind if Family Is Family as next single. It's different subject for her singles. I can't tolerate listening to country radio. I just bring CDs in general to listen to. Is Biscuits being played on radio at all?
@cpayneonaplane: Kacey musgraves just after playing "biscuits" @ #bonnaroo "they just won't play that on the ****ing radio. Maybe they don't like biscuits."
^^ I fell bad for Kacey. She is having some mainstream success and won Grammy. :-( Next time I go in store I'm getting her previous cd. I'm excited for her new one. I really like Cup Of Tea and Family Is Family. I'm excited to hear Cup Of Tea studio version.
The radio needs to play this woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
