A new breed of country music competition show is on its way in the form of My Kind of Country. The project, helmed by actress Reese Witherspoon and country singer Kacey Musgraves in partnership with Apple, is a fresh take on a crowd-pleasing classic.
KACEY MUSGRAVES’ latest album, “star-crossed,” is ineligible for consideration in the GRAMMY AWARDS Country album category. BILLBOARD broke that news today, reporting that UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP NASHVILLE Pres. CINDY MABE fired off a letter of protest to RECORDING ACADEMY CEO HARVEY MASON. The decision about how to categorize “star-crossed,” which was jointly released on SEPTEMBER 10th by UMG NASHVILLE and INTERSCOPE RECORDS, “was made last week during the RECORDING ACADEMY’s annual screening committee meeting, where submissions are reviewed to make sure they are placed in the appropriate category,” BILLBOARD reports. “Members of the screening committees can reject recordings if they do not feel they fit into the genre, though they remain eligible for the all-genre Album of the Year category.”
Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves has announced that she will release her highly-anticipated fourth studio album Star-Crossed on Sept. 10 via Interscope Records / UMG Nashville. This is her first since 2018’s critical success “Golden Hour” and comes on the heels of her split from husband Ruston Kelly.
(Brooklyn, NY) – Lauren Jaimes will be releasing her debut music video and accompanying single “Home Is Where You Are” on Friday April 3, 2020. Filmed in Brooklyn, NY and directed by Forrest Weber, the video is an exciting one-shot performance that complements the song’s playful melody and that just might make you start shufflin’ your boots.
Riding high on the wave of modern traditionalists that have starting taking over country radio airwaves in recent years, Kacey Musgraves is a breath of fresh air. After what seems like decades of hollow country pop princesses being force-fed to fans, she’s shaking things up and giving young women everywhere a brand new voice to relate to. Press play and follow along as we take a deeper look at why Kacey Musgraves is probably the most important female ambassador of modern country music today. In the early 2000’s country radio was slammed with the onset of bro-country, pushing women to the back-burner and the content they sang about into tiny little boxes of home, family, and love or heartbreak. Taylor Swift is probably the best example of the overall place girls were put in, and as a result, most of country music felt that it lacked substance and real relate-ability for anyone past their prom years. Artists like Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert would come along and make a big splash with a fiery sass or heart-wrenching anthem, but those hits were few and tucked far in-between the tropes of, as Maddie & Tae put it, being a girl in a country song. Then along comes Kacey Musgraves. Right out of the gate, Kacey gave us raised eyebrows and a hidden chuckle or two as she slipped her open-minded point of view onto the airwaves masked in a traditional sound.In the same fashion as the legendary Loretta Lynn did while singing about birth control and taking her man, Kacey pulls no punches when speaking (or singing) her mind in the most conservative platform available, and we love her all the more for it! One of the things country music has always done, and Kacey does so well is bring light to the parts of life that are really hard to talk about. In her track “Merry Go Round” off the album “Same Trailer, Different Park” she manages to capture the exact feeling you get when observing life in the small towns of rural America. The simple truths set against a beautiful but melancholy tone paint a superbly clear picture of something that so often gets glossed over as a anecdotal cliche. Same checks we’re always cashin’ To buy a little more distraction Cause Mamas hooked on Mary Kay Brothers hooked on Mary Jane Daddies hooked on Mary two doors down Mary Mary quite contrary We get bored so we get married And just like dust we settle in this town Her game-changing approach to otherwise controversial topics has made her an icon in young country fans hearts, and a favorite among the legends of the industry. Instead of playing it safe like so many others, she flows head-on into lines about smoking marijuana, girls kissing girls, and being honest about the hardships of life. In a time when pedal steel and rhinestone suits are relics of the past, Kacey Musgraves reminds us all why this sense of pageantry and propriety Continue reading Op-Ed: Why Kacey Musgraves Matters to Today’s Country Music
The darling of the jukebox, Kacey Musgraves takes us back to that first taste of sweet sweet love with her new single “Butterflies” off her 2018 album “Golden Hour“. “Butterflies” was released to rave reviews, with NPR proclaiming it as “stepping easily beyond any genre category with a sunny sense that this is just where country should be these days.” The track is featured on Kacey’s critically-acclaimed new album Golden Hour, her third #1 debut on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Golden Hour has been praised by everyone from NPR, Time, The Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, and The FADER, among others, with USA Today declaring “Golden Hour may be 2018’s best album yet,” and The Huffington Post calling it “the work of a self-assured artist breaking the mold instead of the younger version telling us that one day she would.” Kacey has performed music from Golden Hour on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, TODAY, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and she will make her debut on Saturday Night Live next Saturday, May 12th. Kacey played Stagecoach festival this past weekend, with Noisey announcing her set “proves she’s the best future country music has” and The Los Angeles Times observing Saturday’s lineup “offered a triumphant set from Kacey Musgraves, who delivered on her early promise and handled her new stature as a soon-to-be headliner with confidence.” Kacey will wrap up her tour with Little Big Town this weekend, and will go on to support Harry Styles on his tour this summer. Kacey will kick off her headlining Oh, What A World: Tour this fall in Europe, with additional global dates to be announced. For more information, visit http://www.kaceymusgraves.com/tour.
