Kacey Musgraves’ sophomore album, Pageant Material, isn’t even out yet and we’re in love. Slowly, Kacey is releasing snippets of the album and she recently visited “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to debut one of her newest, “Family is Family.”
The song is typical Kacey in its lyrics, but a bit lighter, almost breezy, compared to others. “Family is Family” hosts light percussion and acoustic guitars driving the tune forward.
Fans, of any and every genre, will relate to the song with lyrics like:
They’re there for your first year, they give you your first beer
When you get your heart broke, they’re there for your worst year
Don’t get you at all, but your apple don’t fall too far from ’em
They own too much wicker and drink too much liquor
You’d wash your hands of them, but blood’s always thicker
You might look just like ’em; that don’t mean you’re like ’em
But you love ’em
Family is family, in church or in prison
You get what you get, and you don’t get to pick ’em
They might smoke like chimneys, but give you their kidneys
Yeah, friends come in handy, but family is family
Kacey’s co-songwriters and producers sat down with her (and cameras) to talk about the making of this song and it makes us love it even more.
