Kacey Musgraves ‘Follow Your Arrow’ Too Much For Country Radio? I Think NOT!
Last week at CRS in Nashville, Universal Music Group featured the lunch performance at the Ryman Auditorium, featuring their biggest, best, newcomers, and legends all on the stage at the Ryman Auditorium. in front of nearly 3,000 radio people, Kacey Musgraves received a standing ovation for her song ‘Follow Your Arrow’, now some in radio are saying it’s a bit much…
Is country radio ready to accept a clever new song from up-and-comer Kacey Musgraves that advocates same-sex love and smoking a joint, “if you’re into that?”
The country music industry audience cheered for Musgraves, an ACM Female Vocalist of the Year nominee, following her performance of “Follow Your Arrow” at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium during the Universal Music Group showcase at the Country Radio Seminar. But with lyrics that tell the girls to “kiss the boys” and then to also “kiss the girls if that’s what you’re into,” some radio decision-makers were a little taken aback by the time she left the stage.
I’ll show you the actual video of her performance at the Ryman, and the version from her CD so you can hear it better, but I really want to know, if this song becomes her next single, would you be offended by ‘Follow Your Arrow?’
