10.”Follow Your Arrow”
This is an unapologetic song that empowers the listener to follow their “arrow” no matter what. There is no right or wrong decisions. What might be perfect for one person may be totally wrong for another and only the person doing it will know.
The song is not about smoking but rather about getting stuck in a rut. We often go through life doing what we need to do to make ends meet and not manage to do what makes us happy. It is an absolutely great song.
8.”Merry Go Round”
This is another song about getting stuck in the everyday life circles that often take precedent over our fun and enjoyment. Even though you can read a lot of different things into the lyrics it is a song that makes you think.
A well crafted song with meanings that could be very simple. However if you want to look deeply into the sub-meanings then you will likely find things that have totally different meanings. It has a nice tap your foot beat.
This is a hurting song where the singer has had it. In fact if there happens to be another man in her life she vows to not let her heart get broken again.
This song by Musgrave’s has a nice easy to listen to feel. It is a cross between country and bluegrass and has a nice hook, “Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy.”
4.”It is What It Is”
This is a great song that should be taken to heart by people that take life too seriously. Things will turn out like they are supposed to so just enjoy the ride.
The banjo is a traditional instrument that works really well in this particular song. It’s a song where the singer tells the person listening to move along if they don’t like the way things are going. She doesn’t want the negative feelings.
2.”Heart of Gold”
This song was originally done by Neil Young and his band. Musgraves does a great punched up version of the song. She gives it a very nice modern country rock feel that stands up well against other songs out there.
1.”The Trailer Song”
This country song hits a chord with people. People often associate trailer parks with rednecks and country music. This is a song that is between two people who live next to each other in a trailer park. It is a huge fan favorite and a great sing along song.
