Musgraves makes country music better

Kacey Musgraves isn’t necessarily the spokesperson for modern country music but her debut album, “Same Trailer Different Park,” is powerful enough to shift the direction of the genre.

This album captures the untamed spirit of Musgraves and has received positive attention from a diverse audience. Released March 19 on Mercury Records, the 12 tracks showcase the 24-year-old’s songs that flip around clichés that aren’t worried about being patriotic. Musgraves, with just one song, has ended the conventional country music idiom.
