Kacey Musgraves Gets Personal on “Keep It to Yourself”

Kacey Musgraves’ latest single, “Keep It to Yourself,” may be her most personal.

It’s written about an ex who kept trying to tell Kacey about his feelings for her.

“It’s just about knowing and wanting to know how that person feels about you, like, in a situation, but just knowing that it’s not good for you anymore and that you literally have to be the strong person and say, ‘Don’t tell me, because it’s just going to rope me back in,’” she told reporters recently.

“It’s just like about getting over that hump, that hard part where you feel like you’re just going to die because this person’s not there anymore,” Kacey said.

“Nobody wants to feel naked or uncomfortable, and removing yourself out of a situation that you know is probably not right is really hard, but it’s something that you just have to do.”

Looks like it worked: Kacey is now dating someone different, band member Misa Arriaga.
