Kacey Musgraves reacts after Grammys exclude her new album from the Country category

The 33-year-old singer let her feelings be known in a post shared to Twitter. Sharing a throwback photo of herself in a red cowgirl hat, Musgraves wrote, "You can take the girl out of the country (genre) but you can't take the country out of the girl." The tweet came a day after Variety published a letter from Cindy Mabe, president of Musgraves' recording company Universal Music Group Nashville, to Recording Academy president-CEO Harvey Mason Jr. in which she asked him to reconsider the "determination to exclude Kacey Musgraves' album star-crossed from the Grammy's country albums category." The nominations for the 2022 Grammys won't be announced until Nov. 23. After entries are submitted, the Recording Academy explains, they're screened for eligibility and category placement by "committees of genre experts." And according to Variety, the country screening committee decided that Musgraves' star-crossed belonged in the pop categories. However, a source close to the situation told, Musgraves' song Camera Roll was deemed eligible for the Best Country Song category.
