Kacey Musgraves on LGBTQ+ Support: “We have to tell everyone’s story.”


It’s no secret that Grammy-winning country superstar Kacey Musgraves is a huge supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and its causes, and she defends that it’s an important part of country music.

In an interview with The Tennessean, The Texas native emphasized that country music is about telling real people’s stories – and that includes the members of the LGBTQ.

“Country music is built on real people, and real stories, and I don’t know why a genre that is built on those things wouldn’t move along with history. We have to tell everybody’s story. We’re all real people. We’re all built and are driven by the same emotions. We all need the same things. It doesn’t matter who we’re into.”

Musgraves also detailed how everyone is just the same, and that the members of the LGBTQ+ also need a role model to look up to.

“There’s a lot of people in the LGBTQ community that grow up in tiny towns just like I did, that are terrified to be themselves, and they need people in country music to look up to.  So I think it’s very cool. If the institution of the Country Music Hall of Fame can say that it’s OK, then nobody else can’t.”

Recently she had just opened her Hall of Fame exhibit. It features memorabilia from several of the star’s costumes, awards, and funnily enough, her detention slips.

“There’s just a lot of really wonderful memories I’m happy to share. Something that I try really hard to work at is being present in the moment. There’s so many beautiful things happening all the time. I don’t think that a human really knows how to do that, how to be good at [being present].”

She will soon resume her Oh, What a World, Tour. You can check out the dates at her official website.
