Here’s something interesting! “Follow Your Arrow,” Kacey’s newest single, almost didn’t make it onto her album Same Trailer Different Park. I’m glad it did!
Kacey Musgraves‘ ‘Same Trailer, Different Park’ was almost released without its cornerstone song, ‘Follow Your Arrow.’ But the track made it onto the album just in time, after a last-minute January writing session.
“The record was basically done, and I was getting a lot of pressure because there were already a lot of great songs in the batch,” Musgraves says in an interview with Billboard. “But [co-writers] Brandy [Clark], Shane [McAnally] and I had these ideas, and they just really encapsulated where my head was at. I knew exactly what I wanted to do sonically, and I said, ‘This isn’t a complete record without them.’”
Luckily, the song was finished in time and a complete record was released. ‘Follow Your Arrow’ has been a groundbreaking country song — introducing the industry to some new ideas and helping make country more mainstream.
“It’s been much more embraced by the media and radio than even we were expecting,” Musgraves’ manager, Jason Owen, tells Billboard. “It’s just the first time in a long time that someone’s lyrically said the things Kacey says.”
“It’s not a gay song. We were just trying to list people that might have felt like underdogs at some point in their lives,” McAnally adds. “Sure, gay people have felt that way, but also fat people, or people who get outcasted at their churches for teenage pregnancy, or people who might smoke weed. Also, Brandy and I quickly realized the only word we could rhyme with ‘point’ was ‘joint.’”
‘Follow Your Arrow’ is already in the Top 40, and Musgraves has acquired some big name fans in mainstream music. Katy Perry invited her to perform at her We Can Survive benefit in October, and the duo held a songwriting session recently, which Musgraves calls “an awesome experience.”
Musgraves is embarking on Lady Antebellum‘s tour in 2014 before hopping through shows in Europe and Asia.
Kacey shares with us a fun game she plays with her grandfather every Christmas. Enjoy the snippet below.
Kacey Musgraves may be forging her own path in country music as the CMA New Artist of the Year, but when it comes to the holidays, she’s all about tradition. And one of her favorites revolves around someone very special — her grandfather.
Every year, the ‘Follow Your Arrow’ singer follows a scavenger hunt set by her Grandpa in order to snatch up her Christmas present.
“My Grandpa has a scavenger hunt puzzle that he does every year,” she dishes. “Even though I’m like too old for the puzzle, he’s like, ‘You’re still gonna do it.’ So, every year we do that, and it’s funny ‘cause sometimes you’ll find your present in the bathroom or in a tree or out behind the shed.”
Of course, Musgraves’ family game is not just any scavenger hunt — it’s pretty inventive. “He does a little trail of like either corn or a string to it,” the newcomer adds. “It’s very imaginative, and it’s something I look forward to every year. It’s a little tradition.”
In addition to scavenging her way to her presents, Musgraves loves one other holiday tradition — and this one is more traditional.
“Stockings. I love stockings,” she admits. “They’re kinda my favorite, ‘cause it’s like all the little goodies in there just are fun.”
While she loves the little goodies, the rising star has definitely received lots of big goodies in the form of country music success in 2013. Yep, this year has definitely seen her star rise, and we expect even bigger and better things from her in the year to come.
