Video: Kacey Musgraves – “Oh, What A World” From Golden Hour, out now on MCA Nashville. It’s good to see the young people are doing acid again. (There was a drought in the early oughts.) Musgraves talked to Rolling Stone last year about the effect that hallucinogens have had on her: “It made me more … Continue reading New Kacey Musgraves video: Oh, What A World
Video: Kacey Musgraves – “Rainbow” From Golden Hour, out now on MCA Nashville. Fresh off scoring the #1 album on the Village Voice Pazz & Jop poll and sweeping the Grammys (Country Song, Country Album, Country Solo Performance, and Album of the Year) Kacey Musgraves releases another single from Golden Hour.

Video: Kacey Musgraves – “High Horse” From Golden Hour, out now on MCA Nashville. Where country meets disco. It’s not the first time, of course, but it’s been a while. And the song is super catchy and fun. The video, on the other hand, is an anachronistic mess. Are the office scenes supposed to be … Continue reading New Kacey Musgraves video: High Horse
Video: Kacey Musgraves – “Space Cowboy” From Golden Hour, out now on MCA Nashville. As much as I wish this was a cover of the Steve Miller Band’s 1969 deep cut, it is not.

The Thousand Points Of Light Memorial Waterfall lies dry at the center of the Super 7 Mega Mall food court tetrahedron, and everybody’s got an opinion as to why. Hair triggers, we have them. In this new reality of hot takes and burning questions, it’s fun to clamber onto a roof and shout “BELL BOTTOMS” … Continue reading Listen to Frontier Justice 2/19/17
Video: Kacey Musgraves – “Are You Sure?” (ft. Willie Nelson) Is there anything prettier in the whole wide world than Willie Nelson’s guitar tone? No, I don’t think there is. “Are You Sure?” is a “hidden track” on Musgraves’ latest album, Pageant Material. I suppose the uncommerciality of making a video for a hidden track … Continue reading New Willie Nelson and Kacey Musgraves video: Are You Sure?
Video: Kacey Musgraves – “Biscuits” I love Kacey Musgraves. This song might not be the best thing she’s ever written, but the video is fantastic. Hee Haw and the Muppets? What else do you need? “Biscuits” sounds like a sequel to “Follow Your Arrow” and I guess that’s pretty much what it is. “Arrow” blew … Continue reading Kacey Musgraves continues to uplift America’s spirits
There’s no question that over the past couple of years Americans have really come around on two major political issues: gay rights and marijuana legalization. A poll from earlier this year found that 59% of Americans approve of same sex marriage. It wasn’t that long ago (1998) that Ellen DeGeneres lost her ABC sitcom after … Continue reading Kacey Musgraves gives me hope for America’s future
