Kacey Musgraves has released her latest single, “Follow Your Arrow,” to country radio. The song is about being who you are and living your life and has already inspired a number of Kacey’s fans. Co-written by Kacey, Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, the track is near and dear to Kacey’s heart as it started as a gesture for a close friend.

“It started off as a poem, honestly, for this friend who was going off to Paris for four months studying and she was leaving everything she knew behind, going to a foreign country [and] didn’t know the language,” Kacey said. “I gave her this little arrow necklace and I wrote a little poem and it had ‘follow your arrow’ in it, ‘kiss lots of boys,’ and it kind of started there, but it turned into a bigger idea.”

Kacey is currently headlining her Same Trailer Different Tour. She will join Lady Antebellum as a special guest on their Take Me Downtown Tour in November.
