Hear Kacey Musgraves' Bee Gees-Inspired New Song, 'High Horse'

Kacey Musgraves  will release her fourth studio album, Golden Hour, on March 30, and she's giving fans another early listen with a new song called "High Horse." This funky jam is a departure from the traditional sound most country fans expect from the singer, featuring infectious beats that bring the Bee Gees to mine.
Zane Lowe of Beats 1 on Apple Music spoke with the singer about the fun jam, which Musgraves admits "was a freaking blast" to write and record.
"I had this title for a while," she says. "We all know that character that is just a little high of themselves. They're just a little bit arrogant. I had this title sitting around for a long time and I have my own ideas about who it's about. Everyone has that character in their life and then I got to write it and oh my gosh, it is the most fun ever."

Musgraves says she was "on a huge Bee Gees kick" when she was making the album and she was intrigued by the idea of a world where the Bee Gees meets country music. She co-wrote "High Horse" with Trent Dabbs and Thomas Schleiter.
"These days I only see music really as falling into two two genres, good or bad. You won't find someone on this earth that loves country music more than me but that also doesn't define all my musical tastes," she adds. "I was inspired by a thought of a world where all these ideas could come together musically and still translate as good songs if I sat down and played them on my guitar."

“New York Mining Disaster 1941 (Have You Seen My Wife, Mr. Jones)”
Written by Barry and Robin Gibb (1967)
Performed by Bee Gees


The MusicWhen the Bee Gees debut US single was released in April 1967, a lot of people thought it was The Beatles masquerading as another band. Even the name Bee Gees was read as code for “Beatles Group.” But within a year, brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb established themselves not only as hit makers in their own right, but as chart rivals to the Fabs. “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” the first of thirty-some hits, is one of those rare pop songs in which the title never appears in the lyrics. Most people still refer to it by its subtitle “Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones.” Inspired by the Aberfan mining disas…

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.

Growing up Peta Gibb: A complicated relationship with a very famous father

PETA Weber has never wanted to speak publicly about her father, Andy Gibb, the youngest brother of Bee Gees fame. She didn’t want to acknowledge that she had a celebrity dad and until now, she hasn’t been ready to speak about some of the more painful memories of what that entailed. But after a reunion this year with her cousins to record an album together called The Gibb Collective, she’s finally ready to embrace that famous surname. She’s told her story exclusively to news.com.au. “HE WAS JUST A GUY ON THE END OF THE PHONE ... ” “I didn’t have the chance to get to know my father as well as I should have,” says Peta. “As I grew I learned that he was famous, and that he had famous siblings, but for me he was just a guy on the end of the telephone line.” Peta’s mother and Andy married here in Australia. It was around this time that things were really taking off for his brothers in America, and it was not long before Andy got the call to come over and join them. So, it was with excitement a…
