/ Miss Chatelaine / Music / Follow your arrow – Show #111 (part 2), 30 June 2019


After playing cool new tunes by Australian artists Opelousas, Harrison Storm and Thomas Keating, Katie chats to US correspondent Mark Blankenship about slightly subversive country music and we hear a few songs by artists who tend to ruffle the feathers of the American country music establishment. Topics include why  Kacey Musgraves is a favourite of LGBTIQ music fans, and what makes a country outlaw. Here is the playlist:

  • I Never Kissed Her – Opelousas
  • Falling Down – Harrison Storm
  • Toward the Cause – Thomas Keating
  • The Daughters – Little Big Town
  • Girl Crush – Adam Lambert & Leona Lewis
  • Follow Your Arrow – Kacey Musgraves
  • Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other – Willie Nelson
