Watch Kacey Musgraves Cover Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’
In 2006, Cee Lo Green and Danger Mouse, together known as Gnarls Barkley, scored a massive hit with their song “Crazy.” Ten years later, Kacey Musgraves is sprinkling the song into her setlists, including during a set on the 2016 Cayamo cruise.
Press play on the video above to watch Musgraves’ cover. She begins the song a cappella and a bit slower than the original version, but things really get going when her band chimes in and turns the song into a foot-stomping track that could be the soundtrack to any Western movie. Those may be Gnarls Barkley’s words coming out of Musgraves’ mouth, but she makes the tune truly her own.
Musgraves is currently out on the road, on the 2016 leg of her Country & Western Rhinestone Revue, which began in late August. The trek is currently scheduled to wrap up in early March. At a show in Dallas, she treated the crowd to a snippet of an unreleased tune, “Five Finger Discount,” inspired by a sticky-fingered former acquaintance (not that guy who stole boots out of her car back in January).
“You want a five-finger discount / But nothin’ in life is free,” the song’s chorus goes. “You better hope that karma ain’t a bigger b—h than me …”
More information about Musgraves’ upcoming tour dates is available on her official website.
