"Blowin' Smoke" is a song recorded by country music singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves. The song is featured on her major label debut album, Same Trailer Different Park. It was released April 1, 2013 as the album's second single. It was written by Musgraves, Luke Laird, and Shane McAnally. As of July 10, 2013; the single has sold 135,000 copies in the United States.
The song is about a waitress and other women who want to change their life for the better, but all of her aspirations are only "blowin' smoke".
Billy Dukes at Taste of Country said "every element of 'Blowin' Smoke' works together to fill in gaps in a listener’s mind, especially one who’s never behind the bar or in front of a line cook, nervously tapping on a steel counter while their table’s food is prepared. The peculiarity of subject matter may prevent this single from being a chart-topper, but one gets the feeling that’s not the singer’s measure of success anyway". Matt Bjorke at Roughstock said the song "features an interesting story about how we all say we're gonna do things and change our lives but we end up not doing it. It's honest and real, unlike so much of Today's music". Daryl Addison at GAC says "Kacey sings with more than a hint of her character’s jealous contempt, we’re all out here talkin’ trash, makin’ bets, lips wrapped ’round our cigarettes, when a fellow waitress follows her heart to Vegas.
