Kacey Musgraves’ Epic Cover Of This Gnarls Barkley Classic Is “Crazy” Good

In 2006, rapper CeeLo Green teamed up with music producer Danger Mouse to form a soul music duo, Gnarls Barkley. Together they released a hit single, "Crazy." In 2011, Rolling Stone deemed it the No. 1 song of the decade. Now, country star Kacey Musgraves has covered and, in a way, reinvented the song. The singer-songwriter recently performed her rendition aboard Cayamo, a music cruise. Musgraves gives the song her own country flavor, and the result is really, really good — you might even say crazy good. The cover features Musgraves on vocals and guitar, along with two other guitarists and even a fiddler, Sara Watkins. The track a wonderful and unexpected blend of country and hip-hop.
And since the song will now be stuck in your head all day, anyway, here's a throwback to Gnarls Barkley performing the decade-old original.
