Cuntry Star Dasha Will Have You Line Dancing to This Playlist


This is SOUND ADVICE, a weekly destination for playlists curated by Interview’s friends, enemies, and lovers. Over the past few weeks, we’ve gathered playlists from ThugPop, Chanel Beads, and Wisp. This week’s guest is Dasha, whose latest release has had the masses donning their cowboy boots and line dancing across your TikTok FYP. Her debut album What Happens Now? feels like a revival of the girl-next-door country pop of the early 2000s, pioneered by Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood. For this week’s SOUND ADVICE, Dasha curated a playlist of songs she wished she wrote, featuring everything from T-Swift to Charlie XCX to Dolly Parton, and revealed who put the “cunt” in “cuntry” (Spoiler alert: It’s Dasha, bitch).
