Merry Go ‘Round
“I heard the first few licks of the song and I didn’t know how it would affect me. I’m not always super emotional. When I heard the first part of the song I just started bawling my eyes out.”
“When we were about to pick the first single I really lobbied for ‘Merry Go ‘Round’ because I’m out there every night and I can tell you, hands down this is the one people are connecting with. I’m really glad that was my first thing to say to the world.”
“To me, country music has always been about real life, real things,” she said.
Made using stock footage and an iPhone, Kacey’s video for “Merry Go ‘Round” was meant to be a placeholder until they came up with a treatment for an ‘official’ video. Imagine her surprise when it was nominated for ACM Video Of The Year.
Musgraves, who landed at number one on the Top Country Album charts this week, told Radio.com that she hopes fans find a little humor in her small-town themes.
On her latest album, Kacey Musgraves sets a new standard for country music sending a message of equality on her song ‘Follow Your Arrow.’ She just hopes the genre will be able to keep up.
