How the singer-songwriter feels about country music

While Musgraves is a proud country musician, she is not afraid to call out the industry. During the puppy interview with Buzzfeed, Musgraves said that she recognizes country music needs to evolve its sound.

“And even just sonic differences in songs aren’t allowed, really, to be that popular. A lot of things like, sound the same, and so it’s not just gender. It’s a lot of things. Subject matter and equality, I mean,” she said.

Musgraves continued, “Hopefully over time, that will open and if not, then people will turn elsewhere to find the music that inspires them.
