Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lamberts Songs Attacked by Kacey Musgraves?
While most folks would count current Nashville queens, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, as country music success stories, Kacey Musgraves isn't so sure. According to the latest gossip news updates, the Pageant Material singer thinks that the sassy-stereotypes they promote in their songs belong in a new genre -- separate from the true country western purists more interested in Jonny Cash that the Cash Money Millionaires. Kacey might want to be a little more careful throwing all that shade around, however. In addition to racking up five nominations at the CMT Awards alone, Mike Fisher's wife also lost all the extra baby weight she gained in a matter of a few short months -- proving that the "Something in the Water" singer isn't the kind of woman that is so easily dismissed.
Although the tradition of a tough-as-nail, sweet-as-soda pop female archtype has been around in country music at least since Loretta Lynn released "Fist City" way back in 1968, Kacey Musgraves seems to see it as a new mutation, borne out of modern country music's corporate adulteration.
In a recent interview with Fader, Kacey seemingly called out Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert for making songs like "Before He Cheats" and "Something Bad", which she seems to feels have no right to label themselves as country in the first place (via E! News):
"There was this cycle in Nashville where if you were a girl, you had to be really sassy: 'You cheated on me, so I'm going to burn your house down.'
"I've never felt a kinship to those kinds of songs.
"The more country that my music gets, the less it fits into the country world today.
"It's almost like there needs to be two genres, modern country and...country?"
Chances are that Carrie Underwood has been far too busy between writing super-hits and working that extra baby weight off to pay any attention to what Kacey Musgraves is complaining about.
Underwood's personal trainer explains in the June 8 issue of OK! Magazine, that just as soon as she got the okay from her physicians, the dedicated vegetarian was back in the gym doing all that she could safely get away with:
"She is very motivated...dedicated to being healthy.
"We started out with some lunges and squats, and then slowly began doing core stuff, like planks.
"Now we are getting back into the fun stuff, like pull-ups and boxing."
What a burden it must be for Kacey Musgraves to have all of Nashville secretly rooting for her -- and her alone -- to fail.© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
