Kacey Musgraves is an American country music singer and songwriter, whose most recent album Golden Hour was released on March 30th, 2018. She has numerous hits and is known throughout the country world for her singing and songwriting ability, but also, because she is straight up beautiful.
Musgraves was born on August 21st, 1988, in Golden, Texas, the daughter of a small business owner and artist. She began songwriting at just eight years old, penning a song called “Notice Me” for her elementary school graduation. She first learned to play the mandolin, which eventually expanded into other instruments including the guitar.
She was first discovered in 2008 while living in Austin, Texas, and was signed to a record deal in 2012. She even joined country band Lady Antebellum on tour in the United Kingdom in 2012. Her first single “Merry Go Round” was released on her debut album Same Trailer Different Park in 2013. These did so well that she was nominated for four Country Music Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year. She also was nominated for four Grammys that year, tying Taylor Swift and Lorde for most by a female vocalist that year.
Musgraves is also well known for inserting liberal viewpoints into her songs. As country music is dominated by Conservatives and other right-leaning politics, she caused quite a stir by preaching things like homosexuality acceptance, safe sexual intercourse, recreational marijuana use and even questioning religious sentiment.
Since her breakthrough years, Musgraves has released two more albums and has shown no signs of slowing down.
