1. Ken Tucker shows some love for Kacey Musgraves's new album, Same Trailer Different Park, on the show today:

    One reason she strikes some folks in Nashville as a fresh voice is that she’s here to remind people in the 21st century that a big chunk of the country she knows best hasn’t moved on from — or has regressed back to — the moral strictures of the ’50s or even further, if you want to thump a Bible. She also makes vivid the kind of lives her subjects lead. Where other country artists fill stadiums by giving their fans reasons to escape from their 9-to-5s, Musgraves brings poetry to cigarette breaks, double shifts and fading dreams.
