“Biscuits”– Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves is back on the country music scene with a vengeance, looking for that top-charting single which eluded her on her last album, Same Trailer Different Park. After a censored performance on the CMA Awards, and an amazing CMT crossroads with Katy Perry, Musgraves is poised to become the dominating woman of country music.

Her newly released single “Biscuits,” from her upcoming sophomore debut on Nashville Republic, is the cutest song in country music. Written by Musgraves, producer Shane McAnally, and Brandy Clark (the same team behind her hit “Follow Your Arrow”) “Biscuits” is guaranteed to be a hit.

With lyrics such as “Just hoe your own row, yeah, and raise your own babies/ Smoke your own smoke and grow your own daisies/ Mend your own fences and own your own crazy/ Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy” Biscuits is a very southern metaphor. The biting lyrics about minding your own business are masked by the adorable metaphors they are delivered through. The lyrics are tremendously relatable and possess that feel-good country attitude.

Musically, “Biscuits” follows the same formula present on Same Trailer Different Park, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Musgraves’ formula is unique to her and helps in establishing her signature sound. The backbeat clapping and banjo are classic country sounds, but are given a current twist by Musgraves.

“Biscuits” is Musgraves’ attempt to top the country charts, and with this song, which is number nine on the iTunes country music chart, she has come closer than ever. Her upcoming album is sure to be filled with more biting songs with catchy and adorable lyrics. Kacey Musgraves may have missed the mark with Same Trailer Different Park, but with her upcoming album she is sure to take the country music world by storm.
