If you aren’t familiar with her name yet you soon will be. Newcomer Kacey Musgraves was born and raised in Texas, she started singing at the age of 8, wrote her first song at age 9, and placed 7th on season 7 of Nashville Star. Many people, including myself consider her the future of country music when you take into consideration her voice and song writing ability.
Are you familiar with Miranda Lambert’s new song called “Mama’s Broken Heart?” Yeah, she wrote that. Her debut single is called “Merry Go Round”, which she also wrote and will serve as the lead cut off her debut album set for release on March 19th.
If you’re still not sold on Kacey consider this, she was just nominated for “Top New Female Vocalist”, “Music Video of the Year” for “Merry Go ‘Round”, AND “Top Female Vocalist” at this years ACM Awards. It’s not very often someone this new to the Nashville scene gets a nod in that category. Oh and one more thing, she’ll also be opening up shows for Kenny Chesney on his “No Shoes Nation Tour” this summer! Are you sold on her yet? I sure am!
