Kacey Musgraves: “It’s a Long Story”

Singer Reveals Her Underwear Song

At a recent Kacey Musgraves show in Texas, she got serious for a second about the struggles she had to overcome when she first moved to Nashville.

Namely, a friend who stole all her things, including her underwear.

“It’s a long story,” she warned the crowd. But then she told it anyway.

“When I first moved to Nashville, (a friend) stole a bunch of shit from me and was dumb enough to post all these pictures of herself in my clothes on Facebook. Anyway, I caught her,” Musgraves said. “Nothing really happened with it. They issued a warrant, but then they never found her.”

About the panties, though. “I won’t get too awkward here, but I have this matching bra and underwear set. She literally did take the panties from the set and put that on Facebook, too,” she said, adding, “I did write a song about it.”

It’s called “Five Finger Discount,” and it may not ever make it on to a record or the radio, but sounds like Musgraves has poured both her sense of humor and her past into the song.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
