Kahan "calls...back" Musgraves
Friday, October 6, 2023
– Kacey Musgraves helped one of the hottest singers today, Noah Kahan, for a reimagined take on "She Calls Me Back."
Adding a new verse and perspective to the song, Musgraves sings a conversational back-and-forth with the breakout Vermont singer and songwriter over a buoyant guitar riff and beat.
She sings, "You love me, and I don't know why. I only call you once a week," as he counters on the hook, "Everything's alright when she calls me back."
Kahan said, "Kacey Musgraves is the coolest person ever. Not exaggerating when I say that during the 'Stick Season' album process, we would finish a song, and I'd listen back and be like 'Can you imagine Kacey on this?' Having her sing on 'She Calls Me Back' is incredible, and being able to have her continue telling the story adds a whole new dimension to the song and what it means. I'm so grateful and honored, continually humbled that artists of this level have lent their voice to this album. Kacey is cool as hell, brilliantly talented and represents everything I love about music. She is a true artist, and I can't thank her enough for being a part of this song."

For instance, Musgraves' duet with Willie Nelson plays on (surprise surprise) the iconic singer's propensity to smoke weed when they wish the world "A Willie Nice Christmas." Although there are some sad country songs, like "Christmas Makes Me Cry" and ...
Kacey Musgraves is a welcome throwback in these bro and modern country times. That means you're going to hear sharp lyrics with more than a touch of humor, story songs and even instrumentation that recalls traditional country, like pedal steel, mandolin and a Johnny Cash drumbeat.
Musgraves' tour de force is her uncanny ability to turn a phrase. She does employ fellow producers Luke Laird and Shane McAnally plus Brandy Clark and Josh Osborne, among others, for lyrical help. ...
