Mercury Nashville singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves released her new single “Follow Your Arrow” to country radio today. “Follow Your Arrow” written by Kacey, Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally is the third single off the Texas native’s critically- acclaimed major label debut album Same Trailer Different Park, which was released this past March.
“Follow Your Arrow,” a song about living your life without fear of judgment, continues to be listed as one of the special moments off Same Trailer Different Park. About “Follow Your Arrow” Billboard touts “…the song represents a bold statement from one of the top new voices in the format.”
USA Today admits it’s “the highlight of this major-label debut,” while The New York Times says it’s “a jaunty anthem about doing what you want and loving whom you love no matter what judgmental moralists or your own inhibitions might say.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of creating ‘Follow Your Arrow,’” said Musgraves. “Sonically and musically it’s where my head’s at right now, and I’m really enjoying connecting with people all over the world that agree. It’s a positive anthem for all of us and I’m so excited to be sharing it with everyone.”
Two days after “Follow Your Arrow” hits the radio airwaves, Kacey will join Katy Perry, Sarah Bareilles, Ellie Goulding and Tegan & Sara on Katy Perry’s We Can Survive Hollywood Bowl Charity Show on October 23. Proceeds from the benefit will go towards the Young Survival Coalition, an organization that helps young women with breast cancer.
On November 6th, Kacey will vie for SIX awards at this year’s 47th Annual CMA Awards, which will air live on the ABC Television Network (8:00-11:00 PM/ET). Kacey, a first-time CMA Awards nominee, garnered nominations for Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, New Artist of the Year, Single of the Year and two Song of the Year nominations; making her the first new female artist in history to top CMA nominations.
