CMA Performance with Loretta Lynn, Song of the Year Win glorious moments
Bucket List is gone! Grammy and CMA-winning Kacey Musgraves is just “along for the ride,” all of you. And even when the going gets a little rocky, it is still a heck of ride and reward for the singer-songwriter acclaimed by critics.
He spent much of 2014 defying the odds of country music with their sound and message, and something tells me that just started.
In a recent chat with Billboard, Musgraves reflected in its great year and “Follow Your Arrow,” the great song that changed her career for her. A favorite among fans, but the country radio, well, that was a bit of a different story.
But you cannot keep a good girl down, and you cannot keep a good song with a good message any more.
“It stalled at number 43 on the chart,” Musgraves said. “But people related to him by the message, which is the true measure of a great song.”
This was a song that does not beat around the proverbial branches with your message. Musgraves wanted (and still want) so you know it’s okay to be just who the hell you are. It is there, in uplifting and inspiring lines like “Make a lot of noise, a lot of guys kissing / O kiss a lot of girls if that is something that is”.
It’s that kind of candor and honesty that consolidates its position as a true poet, a genuine voice. These are not just letters. Are your feelings. They are the essence of what it is, not only as an artist but as a human being, too. She really believes it.
And even though the radio may not have felt the same for any reason, there were a lot of people who believed in Musgraves and message. “Follow Your Arrow” took home the song of the year honors in recent CMA Awards. According to Billboard, is the lowest unique diagrams to win that title?
Loretta Lynn believes absolutely in Musgraves, and she is not afraid to shout from the rafters. The two performed Lynn “you look in the Country” on the show, and Musgraves admitted it was a time once in life.
“Getting to sing with (Lynn) at the CMA Awards on the same night” Follow Your Arrow ‘, which literally told me that my face would never be one, is the song of the year was absolutely amazing, “he said.” In this Sorry, I no longer have a wish list. I’m on the trip. ”
And you’d better fasten your seatbelt, Kacey. If 2014 is any indication as to what is coming, the future will be fabulous.
