Kacey Musgraves, "High Time"
Kacey Musgraves got the shaft from country radio for referencing weed on "Follow Your Arrow." Nevertheless, she persisted, repeatedly sing about pot over and over again on her second album, Pageant Material. That's the rebel spirit alive and well. The beauty of "High Time" isn't only in nods to the green stuff, but in the atmosphere: with handclaps, whistles and strings, it's a relaxed breed of country perfect for reconnecting with life outside the fast lane. "I've been too low, so it's high time," sings Musgraves. If she can ditch the pageantry and the pressures, so can we.
