Screen Shot 2014-11-07 at 1.14.05 PMWe know how much you all love country music since Steve Grand came on the scene. Can’t get enough of the stuff, ourselves. There’s…that one band. Oh and the Dixie Chicks, love them. Um, Dolly?

So maybe we don’t know (or want to know) the first thing about the genre, but we can all agree that Kacey Musgrave winning “Country Song of the Year” at this year’s Country Music Awards is a great thing.

Why? Because the song — “Follow Your Arrow” — is a totally pro-gay, let your freak flag fly kind of anthem, and if that’s where country music is headed, things are going in the right direction.

As Kacey’s wisdom tells us:

“Damned if you do and damned if you don’t, so you might as well do whatever you want…Kiss lots of boys, or kiss lots of girls if that’s something you’re into.”

When she was asked about whether country music should embrace LGBT issues, she responded:

“It never happens and I’m sick of it. It’s ridiculous. Whether or not you agree with gay marriage or the fact that people don’t choose to be gay, we share the same emotions, needs and wants. I just think that everyone should be included in that. It’s definitely time.”

Here’s the video for “Follow Your Arrow”:
