Kacey Musgraves – Golden Hour // Album Review

I could barely remember the last time a pure country album caught my attention by blowing up with praise from every music review site out there. It is with this curiosity, along with a blog user’s remark that “this will convert more gays into country than Joanne did”, that I clicked play on Kacey Musgraves’ third studio album, just to see what all the fuss is about.

Its potential success was of course ruined by another fact that will never be okay – the release of E.MO.TION was an absolute mess. After releasing her sophomore effort “Kiss” to worldwide success, the recording sessions for Carly’s next album immediately started, but the initial release timeframe turned out almost a full two years before. Finally the release of E.MO.TION was announced in April 2015, but then, who thought releasing the album two months early...
