Kacey Musgraves writes and performs songs about the American working poor and the dispossessed.
Kacey Musgraves, a young 24 year old singer from Texas, has resisted the tide of corporate blandness and political conservatism. She writes and performs songs about the daily experiences of working class folk.
Musgraves isn't traditional country with elements of rock and folk also sprinkled throughout her work.
'Blowin' Smoke' is the second single from her debut album for Mercury Records, Same Trailer Different Park. The song revolves around the smoke break for exhausted waitresses with limited options and little hope for the future in a country ruled by capital. She is everything that the corporate-approved Taylor Swift isn't.
The album was released in March this year and went to number one on the American country music charts.
