Kacey Musgraves isn’t one to embrace labels. So she says she doesn’t quite get it when people describe her as a “progressive” country music artist. She says she prefers to think of herself as “equal” to other artists. She says these days, “everyone is included in all kinds of different of ideas” — so the idea of being progressive doesn’t make sense. Musgraves notes things she sings about aren’t that much different from other artists.
Kacey released a new single earlier this week, “The Trailer Song,” is now available at all digital retailers. The song was written by Musgraves, Brandy Clark and Shane McAnnally and has been a staple in Musgraves’ live shows.
