LISTEN UP! Hawthorne Heights Covered Kacey Musgraves ‘Butterflies’
Kacey Musgraves fans run the gambit. No matter musical preference, race, gender, geo location, you can find a fans of the Grammy winner anywhere.
Hawthorne Heights is an American punk rock band, perhaps best known for their hit “Ohio Is For Lovers,” and now maybe this; they've released a cover of Kacey's “Butterflies.”
From Billboard, “We tweeted at Kacey, just wondering if she had ever listened to us back in the day,” says front man JT Woodruff. “She tweeted some of our lyrics back to us. We thought it was pretty bad ass that musicians in different genres are still connected. Billie Eilish was a similar scenario. She posted a video of her breakdancing to NikiFM, and thought it was super cool. Both of these are very talented artists, who represent the most current side of pop music. Both sound nothing like what we are used to writing. We thought it was a great exercise in trying to make their happy pop songs sound like sad Emo songs.”
