Kacey Musgraves reveals how personal "This Town" is to her and her family (VIDEO)
Through her first album, Kacey Musgraves became known for her exceptionally truthful, rebellious lyrics as well as her own unique style. With numerous Country Music Awards — as well as a few Grammys — under her belt, her hard-hitting personality has been appreciated by many and resonates with each fan.
Luckily, her first album, Same Trailer, Different Park, is just the beginning. Her next album, Pageant Material, hit shelves Tuesday, June 23.
Musgraves' first single, "Biscuits," released from the new album addresses our society's need to judge one another, and as Musgraves does best, gives us words of wisdom such as "pouring salt in my sugar won’t make yours any sweeter," encouraging us not to bring one another down.
As always, with this album, Musgraves was as rebellious as ever. When she was asked to radio-edit the single, she told Rolling Stone, "People are so worried about offending that they water down everything." Musgraves' blatant honesty coupled with her talent is what has made her resonate so well with audiences.
Along with her rebellious flair, Musgraves has a highly anticipated, sentimental track coming up on Pageant Material, "This Town." According to Musgraves, "This one kind of a has a 'these boots are made for walkin'' kind of feel."
The track appears to be centered on the idea of a small town, with a main lyric being, "This town's too small to be mean." Musgraves, however, is adding something extra by adding the voice of a family member to the track.
"This Town" will be an interesting look into Musgraves' family as well as her personal life. We've heard numerous tracks centered on her strong, truthful opinions regarding life, but this personal insight is reason in itself to check out more of Musgraves' exceptional work.
