The 25th Annual Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards were Saturday in New York City at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and on that day Kacey Musgraves became the first country artist to perform at these awards.
Musgraves sang her song “Follow Your Arrow” at these awards, which serves as a kind of anthem for following your own path and living the life you want to live, a theme fit for the GLAAD awards.
The chorus of this song say, “Make lots of noise/kiss lots of boys/ or kiss lots of girls if that’s what you’re into/when the straight and narrow gets a little too straight roll up a joint, or don’t/just follow your arrow wherever it points.”
“Follow Your Arrow” is off Musgraves’ album Same Trailer Different Park, which recently won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
Musgraves was introduced by openly gay country singer Chely Wright. The young singer said she was proud to be representing country music at these awards. Musgraves serves as a vocal ally to the LGBT community.
