For Kacey Musgraves, her journey to country music came naturally and it’s just like a predestined relationship.
At the age of 8 while most of Kacey’s peers were still learning to write and spell, she began singing at church and practiced songwriting. The first song Kacey wrote was called “Notice Me” and performed at her elementary school graduation ceremony.
In her teenage stage, Kacey even worked on her own to practice music album production. She later signed to Mercury Nashville in 2012 and released her critically acclaimed debut album Same Trailer Different Park in 2013. Her debut won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album. The album’s lead single “Merry Go ‘Round” won her the Grammy Award for Best Country Song. It also featured the platinum certified single “Follow Your Arrow” which won her the Country Music Association Award for Song of the Year. In 2015, she released her second studio album Pageant Material (2015).
Her fourth studio album Golden Hour (2018) was released to widespread critical acclaim and won all four of its nominated Grammy Awards categories, including Album of the Year and Best Country Album. The album’s first two singles, “Butterflies” and “Space Cowboy“, won Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song, respectively. Golden Hour also won the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association Award for Album of the Year, making Musgraves only the fifth artist to win all three major Album of the Year (Grammy, CMA and ACM) awards for the same album as well as the second artist to win the Grammy, CMA, ACM and all-genre Grammy Album of the Year.
In addition, Kacey’s other albums also create a fever on the Billboard 200 every time they are released. Specifically, “Same Trailer Different Park” once reached No.2, “Pageant Material” debuted in 2015 stood at No.3 and “A Very Kacey Christmas” used to hold No.77 on this chart. Most recently, the album “Golden Hour” she just released in late March has settled at No. 4 of the Billboard 200.
Kacey is not only a talented country singer but also one of the artists actively participating in social activities, fundraising for schools and charitable organizations such as: PetSmart Charities, T.J. Martell Foundation and Young Survival Coalition.
With what Kacey Musgraves has been, is and will be doing, she promises to shine even more in the world music industry with unmistakable marks.
