Kacey Musgraves "Pagaent Material"

Kacey Musgraves writes the way the old-time country artist used to—with lots of unsavory behavior hiding behind cheeky, self-deprecating humor and hysterically funny double-entendres. Her lady characters are anything but pageant material. They keep the rumor mill running by sleeping with the wrong men, coming from the wrong families, and staying “higher than my hair.” Funny as she is, Musgrave is equally adept at straight talk about religion and politics, and crooning romantic balladry. Recorded in RCA’s historic Nashville studios, the album echoes the spirit of past country recordings with pedal steel and a dreamy10-piece string section.
