Why It Gets Better: Kacey Musgraves ‘Proud’ to Perform at GLAAD Awards

On May 3, Kacey Musgraves performed at the GLAAD awards in New York City. Musgraves was chosen for her song ‘Follow Your Arrow’ which has the line “kiss lots of boys/or kiss lots of girls/if that’s something your into.” But what makes her a why it gets better post is she tweeted about her upcoming performance saying she was “proud.”

I have written a bit on this blog about country artists being more supportive of the gay community because we’re your fans and we are a lot of the things that country sings about; family, friends, good times, loyalty and doing what’s right. Good to see someone has listened and taken that first step to not be afraid of doing what’s right.

I expect that there will be more artists to follow in Musgraves’s footsteps. In fact, I challenge them to.

Below is Kacey’s performance of ‘Follow Your Arrow’ at the awards.
