Dave’s Top 10 of ’12: #4 – Merry-Go-’Round by Kacey Musgraves

The best songs enable the listener to visualize what he or she is hearing. And one of the most evocative songs I’ve ever heard is Kacey Musgraves’ “Merry-Go’Round,” which she also wrote.

It’s about life in a small dead-end town and those folks who put themselves in a  position that makes it difficult, if not impossible, to leave. I have no idea in what time of year the song is set, but I always picture a gray winter.

Kacey’s attention to detail and her use of passages from familiar nursery rhymes only enhances a great mini-movie set to music.

Country music is all about great songwriting. Well, here you go.
