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.
