I’m so happy to hear country artists like Miranda Lambert are making songs like “All Kinds of Kinds,” which are about being who you are, and loving every bit of it. She tells Spin:
Yeah, it’s pretty crazy that country radio embraced cross-dressing and played it on the radio. It’s fricking awesome, actually. [Laughs.] I think it’s really cool that that song was able to be a single. I love that song — it really came at a good time in my life. I had to just sort of come to this realization that it was all about being who you are, no matter what you are about, where you come from, what color you are, or if you’re gay or straight, or whatever it is. I was just getting to that point in my life where I was starting to accept people for who they are, and myself.
Alongside allies like Jennifer Nettles, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood, it really feels like country stars are starting to speak out for equality. It’s so awesome.
