“The Trailer Song” has been a live staple for Musgraves, and it sounds like a lost cut from her Grammy-winning album. It’s a humorous song, but it’s neither satire nor novelty.
That’s important to me. I like that she gives her characters the dignity that their social and economic status usually denies them. Country music should be their voice, and Musgraves is one of the only ones out there really singing about them. Tellin’ it like it is, as Loretta Lynn might say.
Anyway, “The Trailer Song” is a cool, funny song about putting a nosy neighbor in her place, while also finding enough creative ways to discuss adult situations that it’s safe for the kiddies to listen to.
