Album: not released on an album (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Kacey Musgraves explained the story behind this song. "It just so happened that this girl - when I first moved to Nashville - she stole a bunch of s--t from me and was dumb enough to post all these pictures of herself in my clothes on Facebook. I caught her. Nothing really happened with it. They issued a warrant but then they never found her. But I did write a song about it."

    "I won't get too awkward here but I have this matching bra and underwear set," Musgraves added. "She literally did take the panties from the set and put that on Facebook too. Like what? Winner! But, yeah, the first line of the song is 'I know you stole my panties because I have the matching bra.'"
