It would be an understatement to say that Kacey Musgraves has had a pretty good year. Touring with Kenny Chesney, being one of Perez Hilton's new favorites, releasing her major label debut, winning CMA New Artist of the Year and an Austin City Limits taping are just a few of the awesome milestones she's hit this year. I've been a fan of Kacey, way back to her self titled album, so it's awesome to see all of this success. Good news is we can expect new music, including a few songs she co-wrote with Katy Perry (according to recent Rolling Stone interview) and she'll be hitting the road with Lady Antebellum. Looks like her arrow's heading towards the right target.
Speaking of Katy Perry, I'm sure you're wondering how that came about. Katy is a fan of Kacey and had her perform at a recent benefit concert featuring a few other badass ladies. So you can only bet there was some great jamming and writing happening after that fun show.
Be honest, there's a few people you're friends with on Facebook that you have never met or interacted with in real life. You may have added them because you have a mutual friend or it's someone famous and you thought, "what the hell, it will be cool if they accept my friend request". What if one of those FB friends decided they wanted to drop in on you in real life, how would you react? Some guy did that, deciding he was going to weed through his friends list and go from "Facebook Friend" to "Friend In Real Life".
If you haven't figured out by now, I'm a baseball fan. So in my world, when actual baseball season ends, it means it's time to speculate and drive yourself crazy with trade news. Last night a monster trade went down (out of nowhere it seemed) where the Texas Rangers traded 2B Ian Kinsler for Detriot Tigers 1B Prince Fielder. For those who could care less about baseball, that's big. Real big. Without boring you with my breakdown of how this is a good move even if it's sad to lose Kinsler, just know this is going to be huge for the Rangers next season.
Really, my excuse to blog all of that was as an excuse to show you this ESPN commercial from 2010 where Kinsler and Fielder discuss trading each other. It's almost like they knew something way back then.
And even crazier, this tweet from the 2012 All-Star game, Kinsler was already trying to fill Fielder's shoes, err, I mean pants:
If you're an All-Star, what do you do before the game? Try on another man's pants? Ian tried on Prince Fielder's pants. pic.twitter.com/FDuyLnw8— Texas Rangers (@Rangers) July 11, 2012
