» Kecey Musgraves Opens Up About “Keep It To Yourself”

Kacey Musgraves admits her latest song, “Keep It To Yourself,” was a bit difficult to write as it was about an ex.

“I was going through a bit of a personal down moment and a break-up, and self- discipline has never been something that I’ve been very good at,” she tells Nashville.com.

“So, when this song talks about keeping it to yourself, 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 feels it’s a song a lot of people can relate to as breaking up is hard and it’s not easy getting over that hump where you know everything will be okay. “Literally you just have to be like, ‘If you have feelings for me, just put them on a shelf,’ like I don’t want to hear about them.”

You can find “Keep It To Yourself” on Kacey’s album, Same Trailer Different Park, and catch her CMT Croddroads special with Katy Perry June 13.
