For the last number of avant-garde music magazine The Fader, an unlikely topic graces the cover: Kacey Musgraves. It is unclear if the move says more about the country singer or the will of the magazine to stretch the limits of what they consider relevant, but regardless, the story does not have some interesting data.

Perhaps most notable is a section that makes comparisons between Musgraves and Taylor Swift. The author of the story asks about a particular letter from a new track on their next album Pageant material called “Good Ol ‘Boys Club” where he sings the line, “Another way in a big machine does not sound like fun for me. ”

This could easily be taken as a commentary on the rise of Swift in Nashville label Big Machine, but Musgraves not limited to that.

“I’m talking about a lot of different people,” he said. “Any industry has its shoo-ins and people who get in because they know that someone, or his father worked here, whatever. But, yes, there is a wink.”

Where as Swift hugged his great popularity, Musgrave seems to have a different path, which may be why he has chosen to stay with their roots in the country instead of embracing the pop stardom as Swift.

“The idea of massive amounts of fame that has my face on end caps Walgreens and pizza boxes-I do not fantasize about that … I’m happy to be a songwriter. I’d rather have a smaller number [of] the fans who are really what I’m doing an enormous amount of people who do not really know what I am. ”

Swift is not only that could be criticized Musgraves’. Elsewhere in the interview (“It was not this cycle in Nashville, where if you were a girl, I had to be very bold,” You deceived me, so I’m going to burn your house ‘”) is some speculation that the” Follow Your Arrow “singer was referring to another superstar Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert.
