The country star recently released her own version of the Mary Poppins tune “A Spoonful of Sugar” on the highly-anticipated album We Love Disney and it just might be what the doctor’s ordered to cure a country music lover’s sweet tooth.
“It’s kind of this really fun Western swing, like very Disney,” Musgraves told Spin. “It was one of the funniest things. I do love getting outside of my world and stepping into a challenge like that – especially if it is, like, a whimsical, larger-than-life kind of thing.”
During the beginning of the cut, Musgraves delightfully uproots Julie Andrews’s monologue, but makes no mistake to eloquently relinquish Andrew’s personal sound and follow her own arrow. Putting on the twang the “Biscuits” singer segues into a countrified hoedown with the accompaniment of a few fiddler friends, steel guitar and banjo pickers.
We Love Disney slated to be out Oct. 30 via Verve and Walt Disney Records will be loaded with 15 timeless and nostalgic House of Mouse songs, and will feature a star-studded lineup of artists from a handful of genres across the board. The record will also include a shared duet by Rascal Flatts and Lucy Hale (Frozen’s “Let It Go.”)
