57 Thoughts I Had The First Time I Listened To Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Pageant Material’

Kacey Musgraves is as talented as they come when it comes to country music. Her second major-label album, Pageant Material, was released on Tuesday and I got to work on it right away. I started at track one and played the whole album through. Here are the 57 thoughts that went through my mind…
