Kacey Musgraves New Album is Pure Gold

Todays Country music does not frequent my Spotify playlists. Although every once and while something sneaks up on me.

Music is a love of mine and I will listen to absolutely anything. However, I always swerve away from most new country artists. I have placed them all in the Pop Country bucket, which does not appeal to me. I’m a Classic Country guy (See Willie Nelson, Johhny Cash, and Patsy Cline)…But we all make mistakes.

I had no idea who Kacey Musgraves was until reading this SPIN article a few weeks ago. And even then, I didn’t open my Spotify app and listen to any of her music. I just figured she was another Pop Country artist so why bother. And, to a certain extent, you could classify her as such. But you and I would be wrong.

This is why you have to take the time and actually listen to the music.

Yesterday Butterflies popped up on one of my playlists and so I listened…and I listened again.

I really, really wanted to hate every note and lyric. But then I listened again. And then I took out my own guitar and learned the song so I could play along. I loved the melodies.

The song brought me back to feeling happy about relationships. A place I forgot existed after my experiences over the last few years.

This morning I have been listening to her new album Golden Hour over and over. I’m enthralled with every track. Butterflies got me in the door and the rest of the album kept me listening.

The album is just plain good!
