Kacey Musgraves Has A Disco Jam

Kacey Musgraves has made no bones about the pop music influences on her new LP Golden Hour, but her new song “High Horse” may be the most radical departure yet. Debuted this week on Apple Music’s Beats1, “High Horse” bears the hallmarks of Musgraves’ songwriting, with sharp wordplay, double entendres, and a perfectly executed put down. “Why don’t you giddy-up, giddy-up, and ride straight out of this town,” she sings on the refrain, invoking her home state of Texas as she compares a conceited acquaintance to a prize pony.
