Kacey Musgraves - Merry Go 'Round - I saw some comments on this online about the song being about "small town life" as being the rut the singer is talking about. Hope they don't take too much stock in this song and move to the big city to escape their rut. That is missing the point. People can be stuck in a rut in LA LA Land too. Stars get hooked on drugs and destroy their lives. Hollywood marriages don't last. Cosmetic surgery a favorite past-time among the jet set.
