“One of the reasons I love country music is because it is about real life. It is about real stories and real people, and that shouldn’t just include one set of people, one skin color, one political stance, one whatever. It should be for everyone.”

As one of the faces behind the shift toward diversity in Nashville’s music scene, Fancy Hagoood aims to spotlight the risk-takers (like himself) who have helped break down barriers in the country genre in each episode of his new Apple Music Country Radio show, ‘Trailblazers Radio.’
Airing today (3.30), the sixth episode of his thought-provoking show dives into the story behind a true trailblazing artist, who has not only impacted his career in countless ways, but has also become one of his close confidants — Kacey Musgraves.
Trailblazers radio airs bi-weeky on Wednesdays on Apple Music Country at 2 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. CT, with previous guests including Brothers Osborne and Orville Peck.
This Friday, Apr. 1, Fancy will release a new song titled “Bored.”
