Cool news, guys – Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson are planning to do a song together, maybe it’ll be on Kacey’s next album? That would be awesome! Read more below…
Kacey Musgraves has been on tour this month with Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss. And according to a new interview with Nelson in, of all places, CelebStoner, the “Merry Go Round” singer and the country legend are planning to collaborate on a recording project.
“Kacey and I are planning on doing a song together,” Nelson said in the interview, “an old song I wrote called ‘You Sure This Is Where You Want to Be.’ We’re going to do some recording together and that’s going to be cool.”
Nelson wrote the song (with Buddy Emmons) decades ago, and it first appeared on his 1965 album Country Willie – His Own Songs under the title “Are You Sure.” The song also appeared on the stripped-down 2003 collection Crazy: The Demo Sessions.
Musgraves has already gone on record as a big fan of that particular song. In a 2013 Facebook post, she called it “two minutes and 13 seconds of the realest s–t you’ll ever hear. Never gets old.”
We now have a new song from Kacey Musgraves to add to our devices to blare in our cars this summer! Lots of fans have heard Kacey perform “The Trailer Song” on her tours over the years, and we even have a free live download of the song here, but now there’s finally a studio version!

39. Kacey Musgraves, ‘Follow Your Arrow’ (2013)
“Even if [people] don’t agree with the girls-kissing-girls thing or even the drug reference,” Musgraves said about her breakthrough song, “I would hope that they would agree that no matter what, we all should be able to love who we want to love and live how we want to live.” The heart of her drama lies in waiting for the establishment to catch up. Censored at the Country Music Association Awards and lionized by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, 25-year-old Kacey Musgraves has become one of the loudest symbols of young country musicians embracing progressive values. But like most of her debut Same Trailer, Different Park, “Follow Your Arrow” isn’t an attack on conservatism so much as an attack on any system that keeps us from being who we are, gay or straight, sober or stoned.
We have added 22 pictures of Kacey performing while opening up for Zac Brown Band on May 29th in Tampa, Florida. There’s also an article below which reviews her performance! Check them out!
But with a damp crowd still filing in, and thunder rumbling and lightning striking all around her, Musgraves, the zealously lauded 25-year-old Texan singer-songwriter, hit her mark on time.
She’s as much of a Nashville outlier as Brown, but more for her grown-up restraint than for any sense of devil-may-care personality. Up on stage, flanked by neon cacti, the winsome Musgraves is unshowy, almost laconic, which sort of fits her wry, folksy brand of Texamericana. Her flashiest stage maneuvers included a brief, leisurely stroll around a center thrust stage, and … well, that’s about it. (Unlike Taylor Swift, Musgraves probably COULD lay claim to not being a cheer captain.)
But it’s her songs that tell the story, not her voice or stage antics. Lived-in ditties like Merry Go ‘Round and Follow Your Arrow are as thoughtful as they are toe-tapping, devoid of any over-the-top bombast or climax. A song like her gorgeous, mariachi-tinged cover of George Strait’s I Just Want to Dance With You belongs in the Bluebird Cafe, not on American Idol.
Musgraves did display a bit of whimsy at the end, when, for closer My House, she and her band huddled at the center of the stage, with the boys bobbing in sparkling rhinestone suits that lit up like Christmas trees. Musgraves beamed and waved her hands, and closed the song with a simple harmonica flourish. It was quirky, earnest and endearing, something you might see on a 21st-century version of Hee Haw. Not to suggest that Musgraves is in danger of being swallowed whole by the big, bad pop charts, but a career as a theatrical folk singer, a la Alison Krauss or even Dolly Parton, could sustain her for several lifetimes.
So exciting, guys! The first performance we’ve seen from Kacey and Katy’s CMT Crossroads concert is now on CMT’s website! You can watch Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry perform Katy’s song “Roar” below!
We have been working really hard to think of a fun way to show Kacey how much we care about her, and what better way to do that than to have her fans submit messages, pictures, graphics, etc. to be included in a birthday slideshow! We really hope you will all participate, whether you submit a lot of things, or just a simple “Happy Birthday, Kacey!” Click on this link or the picture above to get involved! Submissions are due no later than August 15!
