sparkle country January 27 2014, 1 Comment

Some interesting things happened on the Grammys last night but for me the highlight was the performance by Kacey Musgraves. I am admittedly a non-fan of modern "country", which for some time now has been less about being country music and more about mediocre pop music with a redneck mentality, urban street clothes and the occassional cowboy hat. I'll take Patsy Cline and Hank Williams over what is being churned out and labeled country these days. 

But last night when I looked up at the TV and saw a kitschy neon cactus and a girl in sparkling, light up cowgirl boots reminiscent of something Nudie Cohn would do, I was interested. And her music was just as twangy and old school as the outfit! The lyrics to the song were charming as well. I love this ensemble!!

 

 

 

And with that, I was inspired to look for some Nudie to share today here and even more over on the Facebook page.
