“Keep it to Yourself” is Kacey’s 4th Single!

Are you guys as stoked for this as we are? I really hope this song makes a big impact on country radio so more people realize how amazing Kacey truly is. Read the article below:

The fourth single from Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Same Trailer Different Park’ album isn’t nearly as risky as her last, or the two before it. ‘Keep It to Yourself’ is a straight-forward country heartbreak song that finds the singer turning the corner on the depression that often comes after a bad breakup.

Musgraves performs the song in the same understated way she sings almost everything on ‘Same Trailer …’ ‘Stupid’ may be the one exception to the quiet coffee shop tone she’s made her signature. This isn’t to say her words lack impact, however. Once again, the Texan’s sharp songwriting is on display.

“You turn on the light then you turn it back off / ‘Cause sleepin’ alone, yeah, it ain’t what you thought / It’s the drip of the sink, it’s the click of the clock / And you’re wondering if I’m sleepin’,” Musgraves sings to begin this song.

Some will say this is Musgraves’ most “pure country” release to date, and production-wise, that holds true. Piano and the familiar whine of a pedal steel power the moodiness of this ballad. Lyrically, her stories have always been expressions of real life events, which is one definition of country music. The packaging for ‘Keep It to Yourself’ is just easier to hold and access.

“Keep it to yourself / If you think that you still love me put it on a shelf / If you’re lookin’ for someone, make it someone else / When you’re drunk / And it’s late / And you’re missin’ me like hell / Keep it to yourself,” she adds in the chorus.

‘Follow Your Arrow’ received a ton of attention, but not much radio airplay. ‘Keep It to Yourself’ is vanilla by comparison, but like everything Musgraves writes and records, the song takes a familiar experience and makes it sound very unique and very fresh.

Why Fans Will Love It: The understated love song expresses how many feel as they begin to get over a broken relationship. It’s nice to have a song like this that doesn’t involve violence.

Key Lyrics: “When you’re drunk / And it’s late / And you’re missin’ me like hell / Keep it to yourself”

Did You Know?: Musgraves has a lot riding on her current relationship with boyfriend Misa Arriaga. He’s a key member of her band, playing guitar and often adding backing vocals.
