Kacey Musgraves Sounds Off About Unauthorized Use of Lyrics (Top Story)
"Heads up! This sign was found being sold in a major corporate western wear chain," she wrote. "(It's now pulled off the shelves) but it, along with SO MANY other countless items with my song lyrics [and sometimes my name] are being illegally manufactured and sold in not only major chains but in smaller retailers too. My lyrics are being ripped off so many times and, naturally, nobody buying this stuff would ever know that the people who actually CREATED these lyrics are seeing ZERO benefits."
