Her popularity wasn’t greased, however; though her past two albums, Same Trailer Different Park (2013) and Pageant Material (2015), certainly sound like the music you’d expect to hear flipping through every station while driving a rural stretch of I-70, she was largely blacklisted from country radio, aside from "Merry Go Round" in 2013, for a few reasons. (Nevermind that a deejay once described a successful and sexist country radio formula as a salad, men as the lettuce and women, the tomatoes, setting off "Tomato-gate.") One, her lyrics come with a no-bullshit frankness emblematic on songs like "Pageant Material," about the reasons she will never, in fact, be "pageant material," and "Good Ol' Boys Club," a refusal to play nice with the male dominance in the record industry. Two, she talks about taking morning bong hits like it were as commonplace as a cup of coffee. Three, she's openly championed LGBTQ rights in a space that's traditionally very concerned about gender normativity.
